"Go the F*** to Sleep"-A Book Review

Updated on June 14, 2011

If we are honest, we will all admit to having had moments when we wanted to yell exactly that! As a mother of six, oh yeah, I've had my moments! This is not to say that we don't love our children dearly, it's just that we are human. Adam Mansbach now makes it possible for us to laugh at the situation that used to send us screaming into the street!

Samuel L. Jackson does a superb job at narrating a six-minute audio book as sort of a sample. He remembers when he would try to put his kids to sleep by reading to them, then realizing it wasn't working!

What People Are Saying

"A children's book for grown-ups! I really did laugh out loud--hilarious!"

"Total genius."
--Jonathan Lethem, author of Motherless Brooklyn, father of two

--David Byrne, musician, father of one

"I wish this book had been around during my daughter's overly protracted sleep rituals! Finally, someone tells it like it really is. This is no-guilt funny and a godsend!"
--Cristina Garcia, author of The Lady Matador's Hotel, mother of one

"This is the most honest children's book ever written. And it's f*cking hilarious."
--A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically, father of three

      I loved this book. As a nanny, sometimes I desperately wish the kids would just fall asleep. Plus, the whole concept is completely unexpected and hilarious! It's good to get the word out.
