    Review quote
    Praise for the original "Go the F*** to Sleep" "Incredibly appealing." --National Public Radio "What makes this latest book seductive is not so much its profanity as its articulation of verboten thoughts . . . letting parents off the hook for their self-recrimination and guilt over bedtime seems the most cathartic tonic." --"New York Times" "A parenting zeitgeist . . .
