As a mother of twins, I can relate to EVERY word of this and SLJ's narration was perfect--the desperation in his voice is absolutely priceless!
This is F**king awesome! I am sending to my adult children as a gift. Really, 15 words are not needed, this is so funny!

This was really funny but I did have one regret: I just wish it was longer. Samuel Jackson does a great job with the narration.
Short, but sweet as f@&k. SLJ perfect narrator for this book. Now I don't think I'll be playing this anytime soon for my kids, but my wife will definatly get a kick out of it.
I got this book for my children, so they would have something new to listen to, and you wouldn't believe how shocked I was went a string of profanity came gushing out into their bedroom . .. I'm kidding! It's a marvelous parody that I've been sharing with my friends and parents.
Now, if the title didn't give it away, this is not a book for children and there is just a little (read: a lot) of profanity. So, if you're still locked in the past century where profanity not directed at you is somehow offensive, I recommend you not pick this up. Otherwise, grab this and get ready to laugh. Samuel L. Jackson really is the perfect narrator for this.
A truer story has never been written! Love it! Being a new mom of twins I can imagine this scenario as they get older.
What else needs be said. Samuel L. Jackson is a god amongst men. His performance encapsulates everything I have ever felt when trying to get my daughter to go sleep, but could never say out loud. I am sure that the book is a great read, but his voice performance launches it to Shakespearean heights.
I don't have kids and was still LMAO listening to Samuel L. Jackson read this book! I bought a copy of the book for my sister who has two children and can't wait to share the audiobook with her. Mr. Mansbach, you're my hero. And, Mr. Jackson, no one could be more perfect to narrate this book. Well done, sir, well done.
Anyone who has kids, has babysat, or anything related with getting a child to sleep, can completely relate to this book.
