5.0 out of 5 starsAs described

I haven't even opened it because it's a baby shower gift. But I'm reviewing in advance with 5 stars because it is exactly what it's supposed to be, arrived on time and everyone's faces when we play it (I'm hosting the shower) will be priceless
5.0 out of 5 starsPerfect humorous gift for expectant fathers

This was a mid-pregnancy gift to my husband, for all the support and love and help he gave me throughout the first 20 weeks. (He really is a doll!) The reading is done by Samuel L. Jackson and the verse is hysterical. (Obviously, if you don't appreciate profanity, you won't like this.) But the most entertaining bit is that the reading is set against gentle instrumental lullabies and spoken in the precise tone of a parent soothing, then pleading, then sobbing at his child to go to sleep. It's so sweetly rendered that you actually COULD play it for a baby - right up until she starts developing her language skills. ;)
5.0 out of 5 starsIt won't help you get them to fall asleep, but it will help you feel a lot better about it all when they don't.

I absolutely love it!
Any parent would understand the content, and appreciate it coming from anyone other than themselves. I have no idea how other parents may use "Go the *beep* to Sleep", but I like to read it late at night (or early morning) when I really want to sleep and the little one(s) don't. It won't make mine sleep, but it certainly helps me to drop the fatigue and crankiness and lighten the *beep* up.
5.0 out of 5 starsSo much packed into so few pages...

Riveting book. Full of M. Night Shyamalan style twists and suspense!
Will they, or won't they go the f%*& to sleep?!? I'm on the edge of my seat every night in anticipation! The complex and well developed characters mature through the book at a steady pace that doesn't just throw the whole plot in at the end, but through out the book from page 1.
5.0 out of 5 starsExquisite literary delivery most parents will appreciate

We've all been there. All you want is some down time. Maybe an adult conversation. I got this wonderful book for parents in printed format and as the Samuel Jackson audio version. He captures beautifully the parental frustration we all keep hidden deep under the gentle veneer of positive child-parent interaction. Bedtime is such a precious and valuable time. But sometimes ... sometimes, you just want your little urchin to give you a break.
5.0 out of 5 starsA CD of things you would not say out loud but may think.

It was funny and that's all it was meant to be and who does not love Samuel L. Jackson. This is a story for adults with children. Don't take it seriously and enjoy the shock of the words and how you probably can relate but will never say it out loud.

I bought this for my sister who is the proud owner of 9 month old twins. The twins don't yet understand what curse words are, so this book is perfect for keeping my sister sane while trying to get the little darlings to actually go to the land of nod, preferably at the same time and for the same length of time. As it was her choice to have babies and not mine, I can't vouch for how successful this book is in actually getting said babies to go to sleep, since bedtime chores are her domain, and my role as auntie is to enjoy singing songs and playing with them; handing back at the first sign of tears or nappy filling.
However, it was worth buying this as a gift just to see my sisters little face on opening it, and to hear her laugh in a slightly strained way, and to see her eyes fill with something like hope at the prospect that this might actually work.
5.0 out of 5 starsWorks wonders on my 1 month old son and 34 year old husband.

Not only does this wonderful little book send me 1 month off to sleep, it works wonders on my 34 year old husband too. When I need some peace and quiet go catch up on the washing or to just generally have some alone time. I read both of my darling boys this book and off they pop into a deep slumber.
Wouldn’t recommend for a child that repeats your words, otherwise you’ll probably be getting a letter from school asking why your child is telling kids to “Go the F*** to sleep” at nap time.
Hilarious if you don't mind bad language! Bought for my Stepbrother and sister in law who's baby was not sleeping at all and they saw the funny side. I think it may have cheered them up a little bit. They then showed my Dad who thought it was hilarious too! Not suitable for anyone who is easily offended!
5.0 out of 5 starsSleep is the cousin of death so dont make me send you on a family vacation

Surprisingly none of the children could actually read so the concern for the swearing was unwarranted, also they did not appreciate the moral of the story in fact they stayed up to listen to the whole bloody thing and asked for an encore

Funny for one read perhaps but a little too close to the realities of parenting when the narrator says they are a bad parent...in jest...but this was bought to cheer someone up and so I didn't give it to them in case that part of the book upset them and so I returned it.
