    Academy Award nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction) rocks this mock bedtime story, capturing a hilarious range of emotions as the voice of a father struggling to get his child to sleep. Go the F**k to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland.

    Overall

    Congratulations Mr. Mansbach on bringing your readers and listeners down to your level which is somewhere between mire and feculence. My father would have never given any thought to using foul language in the presence of his children. He worked three jobs to raise us and saw we had a good education at Catholic school. This short story is just more one bit of positive proof that the scales of decency are tipping toward amorality in America. Mr Jackson, if you think this book is funny you need some time spent on Sundays back in your church. "For what hath a man if he gains the world but loses his soul?" I'd gladly give up unlimited hours to be able to read to my little girl. I'd relish all her imaginative excuses to stay up with the grown ups. I only wish I could turn off my TV to spend even just one more minute enveloping very memory of her and her angelic face and never complain about how tired I was. But I can't do that as she died when she was 9 years old and left me with only sparse and fleeting dreams of days long ago lost.
