520    "For most of us, overwork is the new normal and rest is an
       afterthought. In our busy lives, rest is defined as the 
       absence of work: late-night TV binges, hours spent 
       trawling the internet, something to do once we've finished
       everything else on our to-do lists. But dismissing rest 
       stifles our ability to think creatively and truly 
       recharge. In Rest, Silicon Valley consultant Alex Pang 
       argues that we can be more successful in all areas of our 
       lives by recognizing the importance of rest: working 
       better does not mean working more, it means working less 
       and resting better. Treating rest as a passive activity 
       secondary to work undermines our chances for a rewarding 
       and meaningful life. Whether by making space for daily 
       naps, as Winston Churchill did during World War II; going 
       on hours-long strolls like Charles Darwin; or spending a 
       week alone in a cabin like Bill Gates, pursuing what Pang 
       calls "deliberate rest" is the true key to fulfillment and
       creative success. Drawing on rigorous scientific evidence 
       and revelatory historical examples, Rest overturns 
       everything our culture has taught us about work and shows 
       that only by resting better can we start living better."--
