I don’t have children myself, but I know how difficult it can be to put a child to sleep. They want a story. A drink. Another story. A movie. Another movie. Another drink. To check for monsters. To go the bathroom. All this done in the name of prolonging sleep. Meanwhile, you become tired and frustrated. YOU want to go to sleep or watch a movie. Why won’t this child lay still and just go to sleep!
These frustrations are now illustrated in a children’s book for grown ups with the fitting title, Go the F***k to Sleep. The book was written by Adam Mansbach who has experienced his own sleepless nights as a father. The book is becoming a fast seller on Amazon.com and the audio book is narrated by Samuel L Jackson.

Although the book is kind of vulgar, I find it hilarious. Judge for yourself by listening to the audio.
