Review

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'

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'

If work is our national religion, Pang is the philosopher reintegrating our bifurcated selves -- Arianna Huffington, New York Times Book Review

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

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

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'

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

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

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

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
