"Sleep Well, Take Risks, Squish the Peas is one of those books that you find yourself thinking about well after you've finished it. It turns out we already know how to live a fulfilling life. We just forgot the lessons. Hasan Merali provides a much needed fresh perspective, showing us with plenty of evidence to back it up, why we need to be a little more like a toddler. A must-read for anyone looking to have a healthier, happier, more productive life."

--Steve Magness, author of Do Hard Things and coauthor of Peak Performance
"From the psychology of toddlers comes a surprisingly intuitive blueprint for a better life. This is one of the most original advice books I've read in a long time!"

--Cal Newport, New York Times bestselling author of Digital Minimalism and Deep Work
"In this telling (balanced, of course, by the downsides), understanding the toddlerverse is a point of entry into a marvelous stage of children's lives and a more positive way of being an adult."

--Harvard Magazine, Off the Shelf, March/April 2024
"By encouraging readers to be more spontaneous and adventurous, Merali frees them to be better and more authentic human beings.... An interesting and well-reasoned approach to help readers slow down, relearn how to relax, and shed any notions of what it means to be an adult."
