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.
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.
Hysterical. Every friend of mine that has listened to this has laughed and cried. It is such a joy to realize you are not alone in the thoughts that run through your head at bedtime. Samuel Jackson is awesome as the narrator.
I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!
This is an enjoyable book. It made me smile from the start. This is a correct match of story, humor and reader. I strongly recommend it.
Over and over and over! It's exactly what every parent wants to tell their child when trying to get them to sleep. It's hilarious.
I can't think of another book that would even come close to comparing to Go the F--k to Sleep. It's in a class all by itself.
It's Samuel L Jackson, what's not to like? He does such a fantastic job of portraying the desperation a parent feels in trying to get their kids to go to sleep. You know right away that he's been in this situation and understands what other parents feel.
