If you are a parent, you can identify with this book. If not, you are probably lying. This book is a father’s account of his attempts to get his child to go to sleep, told poetically as a children’s book for grown-ups. It is, in essence, what every parent thinks but you’re not allowed to actually say.
I thought this book was absolutely hilarious. As the oldest of four kids, I can attest to the fact that my parents probably wanted to say this on more nights than I can count.
To make it even better, Amazon is offering “Go the F**k to Sleep” as a free audio book for a limited time. Free is always good, and the narration is priceless. The narrator is, of course, none other than Samuel L. Jackson.
