As a former flight attendant, now working in the Oil & Gas industry in a heavily industry dependent Central Qld city, this book has been both a walk down memory lane (thanks James😘) and a wake up call! 15 yrs of flying and I did everything wrong!!! 15 yrs later still don't get it. Until now. Water and sleep are now at the top of my list of life's greatest priorities instead of the footnote to everything else. But that over simplifies the benefits of this book. It's compulsory reading for everyone who cares about their health and well being... and a damned good read!
As a fly in fly out Nurse FIFO workers will appreciate most of this book just as much as anyone in the aviation industry (my old bailiwick) written with great knowledge and with tongue firmly in his cheek this Author has managed to make a sonorous topic interesting and humorous. I defy you to read it and come away not had had a quiet laugh and learned something.
Fascinating read for anybody who places their trust in long haul pilots & cabin crew, or has more trouble sleeping now than they used to. This book is chock full of useful information about getting to sleep, staying asleep, and waking up when required. It also has a great bonus chapter about surviving long haul flights as a passenger. The single most effective tip for me was not to board such a flight tired. (I'd always believed that I would be more likely to sleep during a flight if I was tired.). Thanks to this book, I recently survived a long haul flight in the best condition ever!
It is always the original ideas that win with books, and this is one that most people have been waiting for someone to write about. This book is very well-researched, well-written, and thoroughly deserves to be read and reviewed by mainstream global media outlets. The author provides the readers with factual and very useful messages on a subject that is crucial for those who take us safely from A to B. The author does this all with an entertaining and witty song throughout. It is a pleasure to read what he has written - so much more beautiful and interesting than anything else that you will find in any aviation related magazine (really).
