Recently, Nick authored a fantastic book on the importance of sleep and recovery titled: "Sleep: Redefine Your Rest, for Success in Work, Sport and Life".

Having read the book, it's a tremendous and practical guide that all coaches would benefit from reading and applying the simple lessons provided in the text.
