Notes From Your Bookseller

There are so many sleep books for infants, toddlers and children of all sorts, but this is the groundbreaking sleep book for adults that have a tough life. Although good luck sleeping through all your laughter.

The #1 New York Times bestseller—a gift book for parents that will have them laughing even as they cry.

One of Reader's Digest's "25 Funniest Books of All Time"

"Nothing has driven home a certain truth about my generation, which is approaching the apex of its childbearing years, quite like this." —New Yorker

"A parenting zeitgeist" —Washington Post

"A hilarious take on that age-old problem: getting the beloved child to go to sleep." —National Public Radio

"A new Bible for weary parents" —New York Times

"Resonates powerfully with almost everyone" —Boston Globe

Go the Fuck 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. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award–winning author Adam Mansbach's verses perfectly capture the familiar—and unspoken—tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations, and laugh at their absurdity.

With illustrations by Ricardo Cortés, Go the Fuck to Sleep is beautiful, subversive, and pants-wittingly funny—a book for parents new, old, and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.
