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.
like I said, i should have known from the title--but hearing the F word so many times---yuck!!!!!!!!!!!!
I cannot imagine having children and feeling like this. Honestly... why have children at all?

I got this piece of C**P free and is S**ks so bad that I can't believe that Audible would even F**king offer it.
Wow. I am not sure what to say except that, having read through many pages of 5-star reviews, I am suddenly beginning to get an inkling as to why I have had so much difficulty using audible customer reviews as the basis for screening books. I am about the furthest thing from being a prude that you will find, and yet, although this book wasn't offensive to me whatsoever, it was insultingly simple, mundane, predictable, inane, and simple minded. I am actually pleased to have listened to it and, more importantly, to have read through the many customer reviews written for it. If nothing else, it provided me with a real understanding of why I can't ever seem to find a correlation between my own likes and dislikes and those of other reviewers. At the risk of sounding sanctimonious, I will say that the average customer review being an almost perfect 5 stars seems to say alot about what I see as a deterioration in the overall level of substance (or lack thereof) in the entertainment industry as a whole these days. When a narration can earn a perfect 5 stars with nothing more than completely predicable Dr Seuss style rhymes, punctuated with the F bomb ever 4 stanzas, it is no wonder that I am findind it ever increasingly difficult to find a good read.
No- I hated everything about it. I loved my kids, and I thought it was just going to be funny, but it was offensive.
It was free.

No content. Didn't make any difference.
I wasted my money.
