"Take a break and read Rest: you'll make smarter decisions, have better relationships, and be happier and more creative" James Wallman, author of Stuffocation "Many of us are interested in how to work better, but we don't think very much about how to rest better." Do you regularly find yourself too tired after a long day at the office to do anything other than binge TV, or scroll mindlessly through social media? Do you go on holiday and still compulsively check your email? Do you work through your lunch-break, often not even leaving the office and getting some fresh air? For most of us, overwork is the new norm, and we never truly take the time to rest and recharge. But as Silicon Valley consultant Alex Soojung-Kim Pang explains in this groundbreaking book, rest needs to be taken seriously and to be done properly, because when you rest better you work better. Drawing on emerging neuroscience, Rest is packed full of practical and easy tips for incorporating rest into our everyday: - Stopping work on a task when you know exactly what the next step is will make it easier to get started the next day, and will help you set a steady working pace - Take a long walk when you're stuck on a task; it will help stimulate new ideas and creativity - Have deliberate rest periods - scheduled into your diary - and use this time on trying a new activity such as painting or learning a language When you rest better you'll find that it won't just be your work which improves - you'll have more time for hobbies, stronger relationships and you'll sleep better, too. "An incredibly timely read for my own increasingly rest-starved life. This might be the book to finally persuade us that downtime isn't in conflict with good work; rather, it's an essential ingredient of it" Oliver Burkeman, Guardian

Recensioner i media

Skeptical without pandering to technophobia or neuroscience * The New Yorker (on The Digital Distraction) * Amusing and edifying * Washington Post (on The Distraction Addiction) * Pang offers original and often inspired ideas * San Francisco Chronicle (on The Distraction Addiction) * You're holding some terrific advice in your hands on the virtues of walking, napping, and playing. Pang has written a delightful and thought-provoking book on the science of restful living. * Clive Thompson, author of Smarter Than You Think * It's high noon for the global economy's thinking class, who are locked in a losing battle for clarity in a crowded, clickable world. This book is a science packed call to arms: it's time to claim rest as a right and pay close attention to the needs of our beleaguered brains. * Anthony Townsend, author of Smart Cities * In his Fascinating, well-researched and highly readable new book, Dr pang makes an excellent case for the critical importance of rest in our lives. You will consider how and why you rest in a completely new light after reading this book. * Wendy Suzuki, Professor of neural Science and Psychology, author of Healthy Brain, Happy Life * Good books are interesting and valuable; but the best books reframe the way you see the world, getting you thinking differently about everyday situations and assumptions. Rest does just that. With a fascinating combination of research and historical examples, your view of rest - as what you do when you are not working - is turned upside down. A thoroughly enjoyable, insightful and life-enhancing book. * Tony Crabbe, International Business Psychologist * I love Rest. It places rest back on the pedestal it so clearly deserves and generously points out - through great stories and acute insight - things to reflect on and build into our own lives. * Rohan Gunatillake, Founder of Mindfulness Everywhere and creator of the bestselling buddhify app * Want to be creative and get more done? We used to think only hard work was the answer. This beautifully researched book debunks the "work till you drop" myth by describing how intentional rest is crucial for being your best. Drawing on a wide range of sources, including neuroscience, the arts and psychology, Rest will fundamentally change the way we see work in the years to come. Give it to your boss! Give it to your work-obsessed spouse! Give it to your frazzled office buddies! A new paradigm of work is emerging and this fascinating book will be an indispensable guide -- Peter Fleming author of 'The Mythology of Work' Read this book, and you'll see how time off helps us learn and create better -- Ferran Adria, 3-Star Michelin chef and founder of El Bulli Alex Soojung-Kim Pang shows us how much more productive we can be by spending less time in noisy open-plan offices . . . It should be compulsory reading for office managers everywhere -- Katie Law * Evening Standard * If work is our national religion, Pang is the philosopher reintegrating our bifurcated selves -- Arianna Huffington * New York Times Book Review * An incredibly timely read - for this moment in history, but also in my own increasingly rest-starved life. This might be the book to finally persuade us that downtime isn't in conflict with good work; rather, it's an essential ingredient of it. -- Oliver Burkeman, Guardian columnist and author of 'The Antidote' Take a break and read Rest: you'll make smarter decisions, have better relationships, and be happier and more creative. * James Wallman, author of 'Stuffocation' *
