For athletes, sleep is the new "magic pill"

That Zeo device does sound pretty cool.
Anyone know someone who has tried it?
I bought Tom one for his birthday, and he loves it.
Now for a harder question. Worth buying now, or wait for the next generation?
Sleep is good:
People who REALLY don't need much sleep are quite rare and not normal:
There is one advantage to being tired, though:
If someone is not a professional athlete, how much sleep does s/he really need?
7-8hrs. Naps are pretty amazing too:
7 I can do.
10 is too much. It leaves no time for anything but work and sleep.
I was under the impression that naps were bad for the fact that it will interrupt your sleep cycle at night. I think the best preparation before a race day is a huge meal, 7-8 hours of sleep and to be hydrated.
Interrupting night sleep cycle is only an issue if naps are too long or too late in the day.
