Publisher's Summary

In our 24-7 global economy, rest feels like a luxury at best and a weakness at worst. We see work and rest as competitors - but what if they're actually partners in a productive, balanced life?

Blending rigorous scientific research with examples of writers, painters and thinkers - from Darwin to Stephen King - Silicon Valley futurist and business consultant Alex Soojung-Kim Pang exposes how we've underestimated the power of rest for our success. Though it's as natural as breathing, it's also a skill we can all learn to boost our creativity and productivity. Full of tips for upping our downtime, from sleep to hobbies to vacation, Rest is a new road map for finding renewed energy and inspiration - and getting more done.

This is more than a book... it’s a life-changer

This book should not only be read by every person on the planet, but it should become an integral part of every institution’s DNA - from schools to the corporate world.

BRAVO!!!
