Nick Littlehales – Sleep [REVIEW]

Title: Sleep

Author: Nick Littlehales

Type: Non-Fiction

Page Count/Review Word Count: 188

Rating: 3.5/5

This book was recommended to me by Alex of The Bookish Report because he knows that I suffer from insomnia. I’m not sure whether he’s read it himself or whether he’d just heard about it and thought I’d like it. Either way, it was a decent recommendation.

Sleep is about exactly what it sounds like – it sets out to be a guide to sleep that’s more easily readable than all of the academic stuff that’s already out there, and Littlehales does a great job of that. It also helps that he’s worked with a bunch of high-profile figures to help them to perform at their best, including the gold medal winning Team GB Cycling team and Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United.

There’s a lot of actionable stuff, but I’m not too sure how much of it I’ll actually be able to put into practice. I’m going to give it a shot, but I think I might be too set in my ways. I understand why I should, though.

Anne Cakebread – Teach Your Cat Welsh [REVIEW]

Title: Teach Your Cat Welsh

This book is a gimmick and it knows it, and so I don’t think you should pick it up if you seriously want to learn Welsh, although it will teach you a few words and phrases to get you started.

Really, I bought this for the simple reason that I was in Wales at the time and I have a cat. That’s pretty much the main reason why you’d buy a book like this. It’s cute though, and I liked the way it also included guides to pronunciation.
