In today’s ambitious and competitive world, we are taught that hard work is the only path to success. Taking time for ourselves is seen as selfish, lazy, or weak, and considered the number one reason for failures of all sorts. Without question, a strong work ethic is important. But what happens when hard work is all you have left? With your relationships neglected, your free-time non-existent, and your health in decline, can you really hope to enjoy your success? Just like day and night, rest balances work. A strong rest ethic is all about securing your own oxygen mask first and taking care of yourself. Sound selfish? It's not. A strong rest ethic offers you better health, more time to understand and pursue what you truly value, and a healthier, relationship with work, so that you can better meet the never-ending demands on your time and energy. We can all experience this balance, not by detracting from our work ethic but by including a strong rest ethic. Now included in this expanded Second Edition: Financial Rest and Putting your Rest Ethic to Work.

Every time Mark W. Merritt puts on the uniform of a US Naval Officer, he is reminded of how thankful he is to be an American. He began compiling his memories in 2008 while serving in Iraq, just after celebrating his fiftieth birthday in a combat zone. In his memoir, he offers a collection of lessons learned from his years in intelligence—through twenty-nine countries, frost bite, two hip replacements, cancer, three wars, five combat zones, eight marathons, multiple parachute jumps, three college degrees, and two black belts. He has been an author, high school hall-of-famer and collegiate NCAA athlete, mountain climber and kayaker, husband, son, brother, warrior, scholar, and gentleman. As a special operations intelligence officer, Merritt has always pushed to do more, but now he can step back and take in what he has accomplished. He has failed many times, but he has succeeded often, as well. Happiness no longer seems like an unobtainable goal. They Rest Not at Night offers both Merritt’s personal life history with all its variety and an exploration of his intelligence experience, sharing his own commentary on the wisdom he has gained the hard way.
