Mixed feelings!

I'm shaking my head just before writting my review. To be honest, I'm dissapointed. But at the same time, my attention has been caught and I've learned some tip.

I was happy to read about the author experiences as I recognise myself in the description. I was eager to find ways to live a better life.
Unfortunatelly, the first part of the book is like stating the obvious. Exercice, go to bed early and eat well. Ok, nothing new under the sun...

When I went through "sleep troubles", there was enough informations and references to make it interesting. Probably a bit superficial but interesting.
Too bad, the exercices part states once again the obvious.

So yes, this book is good for you if you are not already exercising, taking your car too much instead of walking and eating junk food instead of cooking.
I would have liked some advices for people who are already doing that and still feel tired and overwhelmed.
