Rest: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less by Alex Pang
Call Number: 612.042 P191r
Looking at different forms of rest, from sleep to vacation, Pang dispels the myth that the harder we work the better the outcome. He combines scientific research with examples of artists and thinkers to challenge our tendency to see work and relaxation as antithetical. "Deliberate rest," as Pang calls it, is the true key to productivity, and will give us more energy, sharper ideas, and a better life. "Rest" offers a roadmap to rediscovering the importance of rest in our lives.
