You know her as the co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post—a position that’s garnered Arianna the title of “the 52nd most powerful woman in the world” (Forbes, 2014). But for the girl who once shared a one-bedroom apartment with her sister and single mother in Athens, Greece, it’s the simplest things—like the regenerative powers of a good night's sleep—that have come to matter most. It’s Arianna's crusade, in fact, to share the dangers of not getting enough pillow hours ("sleep deprivation is the new smoking"), and the urgency (fun, too!) of changing our ways. Arianna's new book, The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life One Night at a Time, is truly transforming lives—and energizing creativity worldwide. We can’t wait to share this conversation—perhaps the most important show we’ve ever done or could do. So get ready to get more high-quality, restorative, beautifying, sex-a-licious zzzz’s starting hopefully as early as tonight!
