Sleep is central to every part of our lives, and a good night's sleep begins by putting aside the day's worries. But in today's technology-saturated world, saying goodnight to the day is harder than ever. Allow author Arianna Huffington (Thrive, The Sleep Revolution) to guide you to a peaceful night's slumber as she performs Goodnight Smartphone: a classic tale reborn for the modern age, when the hardest thing to say goodnight to is not the moon but our phones, our email, our social media, our always-on digital selves.
During a visit to Audible to speak about the benefits of sleep, Arianna joked about what a wonderful book Goodnight Moon is and how other childhood classics help transition kids from daytime to sleep time. She posited why there weren't such books for adults. "Goodnight cares of the day, goodnight worries about tomorrow, goodnight laptop!" she exclaimed. Soon after, Goodnight Smartphone was born. Listen as Arianna borrows from the traditions of children's bedtime stories to create this modern age adaptation for adults, and learn more about her daily sleep regimen in her introduction. Exclusively written for Audible, available only in audio. Free until April 16, 2017.
Inspired by children's bedtime classics, this audiobook is a playful and relaxing guide to help you transition from the worries of a stressful day to a good night's sleep, and you can hear it only on Audible.
A short overview of some of the ideas presented in Huffington's recent book The Sleep Revolution with a twist of using the children's book GoodNight Moon as the format. I didn't think it was as awful as some reviews here on Audible made it seem. In fact, it was only 6 minutes long, offered a variety of helpful ideas about getting more sleep and it was free. You can't beat that for a deal. Glad I listened.

When I saw that someone had decided to revisit Goodnight Moon, I figured it was worth a look. This whole digital "board book" is painful and certainly not a book that I would share with the children in my life. It seems oddly preachy for what I would have assumed was a book intended for children. Seriously, even as a FREE book this is a waste of your time. This awkward stream of consciousness seems more like someone is projecting their own stresses onto paper. I almost regret the fact that it is in my Audible library now because I know I will never listen to it again.

As a person with several sleep disorders I love all the work You have done to bring this to the news and forfront of the day. I especially want to thank you for your personal good note to me. I did hear Good nite Burn out right.
Arianna has influenced me to turn of the gaming console and go to bed before midnight. Good night Mrs Huffington and good night Audible.
Your a fantastic speaker and writer, i learned about you from your introduction inside GoGivers Sell more and loved your voice. Thank you for this story, I just started implementing it and I think its one of those things i needed in my life. I was frustrated by sleep for a while because i would always want to achieve more but this story along with your other books that i plan on getting are educational and helpful! Thank you Ms.Huffington your greatly appreciated
they really should have the option to skip over the intro. Doesn't really make for a good night time story when you have to hear the politicized agenda.
To me this book is a rather enjoyable modern twist on a classic and beloved bedtime story for me. Truthfully, the first time I listened to this Audible audiobook, I was not expecting to enjoy it at all. The original story has always been dear to my heart so I knew this remake could never be as good. Still I listened with an open mind and found a book that was relevant to listen to. The mentions of Melatonin, stresses of work, weight loss, and more are stuff that I've struggled with so it was nice hearing all this mentioned. My removal of a star was with Ms. Huffington's voice. Honestly I think it would have been better if she just did the introduction and someone else read the book. Some people greatly enjoyed her voice but I just thought it was tolerable. Since she did write the modern version I can she why she wanted to read it.
