    Even though I'm a night owl, I couldn't finish this book. It's just so angry. I mean, I knew I should've put it down when he compared the societal prejudice towards night owls to racism. Uhm... as far as I know, no person has been shot in their bed for being night owls. I dunno. The author kept on repeating how night owls are so much better than morning people and he kept on bragging about his own life. Also, he kept on referring to studies and quoting things without actually referencing things Even though I'm a night owl, I couldn't finish this book. It's just so angry.

I dunno. The author kept on repeating how night owls are so much better than morning people and he kept on bragging about his own life. Also, he kept on referring to studies and quoting things without actually referencing things back. There was no index of resources and it was very subjective. For a book that claimed to be based on facts and science, I didn't see much of that. I would much rather recommend reading When, by Daniel H. Pink. A much better and well-written book on chronotypes and things to do to improve one's day depending on our internal clocks.

    This book really made me rethink when I schedule meetings and other things for my staff. I want to dig a little deeper in this subject.

    Русское название этой книги ("Совы умнее жаворонков") весьма провокативно - в оригинале более спокойное "Миф утра: как любая сова может стать более продуктивной, успешной, счастливой и здоровой". Но, по содержанию книги, ввиду того, что автор - менеджер по продажам, которого личные причины мотивировали углубиться в тему, то, видимо, "профессиональный кретинизм" сформировал в нем некоторые черты характера, и подача в тексте чуток агрессивна, так что русское название вполне себе отражает суть книг Русское название этой книги ("Совы умнее жаворонков") весьма провокативно - в оригинале более спокойное "Миф утра: как любая сова может стать более продуктивной, успешной, счастливой и здоровой". Но, по содержанию книги, ввиду того, что автор - менеджер по продажам, которого личные причины мотивировали углубиться в тему, то, видимо, "профессиональный кретинизм" сформировал в нем некоторые черты характера, и подача в тексте чуток агрессивна, так что русское название вполне себе отражает суть книги. Всё же не учёный, хоть и на столпах их знаний. Ну что же. Книжка интересная и полезная. Главным образом тем, что заставляет задуматься о сне, о том, как вы спите, сколько вы спите, какой у вас график сна и насколько качественнен ваш сон. Сон нужен для восстановления: мозгу нужно 8 часов, но не абы каких, чтобы там была глубокая фаза сна, так что употребление алкоголя или снотворного ради "выспаться" работает плохо, ведь они убивают эту самую глубокую фазу сна, а к тому же имеют эффект медицинской толерантности. Имеет значение, во сколько вы ложитесь, встаёте. Природа/эволюция - хитрая хозяйка и постоянно экспериментирует с человеческим родом: так у нас есть, кто подымается очень рано, "жаворонки", и тех, что поздно, "совы". Автор, правда, игноририрует тех, что посередине, так называемых "голубей". Я полагаю, что, подобно тому, как есть человеческие системы раннего предупреждения, меланхолики, так и системы второго дыхания, флегматики, так есть и системы раннего пробуждения, жаворонки, и позднего засыпания, совы, чтобы круглосуточно оберегать племя от врагов. И эти системы встроены в нас, с некоторой адаптивностью, но, в целом, неменяемы. Однако при развитии цивилизации совам в какой-то момент отказали в равноправии, мол, солнце не ждёт с дневными работами - а до развития психологии труда было ещё долго. Так что радость жить по своему циркадному ритму появилась достаточно недавно, и то не для всех. Но зато есть культура кофе, вызывающего стресс, принимаемый за прилив энергии, стресс от недостатка сна, и стресс от нежелания спать из-за невымытого из организма кофеина... Высыпайтесь, в общем!

    Bottom line: this reads like a self-published book There is very little productivity advice in this book beyond telling people to get the proper amount of sleep. The first half of the book is mostly an account of the author’s own professional experiences that I didn’t find at all relatable. The second half is mostly a recounting of basic research into sleep patterns, but little in the way of practical advice on applying the research to a more productive career and life.
