Goodreads Summary:

From the author of the international bestseller Go the Fuck to Sleep comes a long-awaited sequel about the other great parental frustration: getting your little angel to eat something that even vaguely resembles a normal meal. Profane, loving, and deeply cathartic, You Have to Fucking Eat breaks the code of child-rearing silence, giving moms and dads new, old, grand-, and expectant a much-needed chance to laugh about a universal problem.

A perfect gift book like the smash hit Go the Fuck to Sleep (over 1.5 million copies sold worldwide!), You Have to Fucking Eat perfectly captures Adam Mansbach’s trademark humor, which is simultaneously affectionate and radically honest. You probably shouldn’t read it to your kids.

Adam Mansbach is the author of the #1 international bestseller Go the Fuck to Sleep, as well as the novels Rage Is Back, Angry Black White Boy, The Dead Run, and The End of the Jews, winner of the California Book Award. He has written for the New Yorker, the New York Times, Esquire, the Believer, and National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. His daughter Vivien is six.

Owen Brozman has illustrated for National Geographic, Time Out New York, Scholastic, Ninja Tune, Definitive Jux, and numerous other clients. He and Mansbach recently collaborated on the acclaimed graphic novel Nature of the Beast, and his work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, Creative Quarterly, 3×3 magazine, and many more. He lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife and daughter, whose favorite food is bananas. (

My Thoughts:

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.  Would I buy this based on the cover/title alone? Hell yes, if I was a parent! It is hilarious! The follow up to the famous Go the Fuck to Sleep, this book is just as awesome as the first book.  The art by Owen Brozman is perfect for the story.  I don’t have kids, but I was a nanny for quite some time, and I think this is the perfect picture book for parents.  It give some comic relief to very frustrating moments dealing with kids.  You also have to hear the story told by Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad.  It is epic.

8PS: What do you guys think about these books?  Are the funny or in bad taste?
