Review: You Have to F*ing Eat by Adam Mansbach

From the author of the international best seller Go the F*** 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 F***ing 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 F*** to Sleep (over 1.5 million copies sold worldwide!), You Have to F***ing Eat perfectly captures Mansbach's trademark humor, which is simultaneously affectionate and radically honest. You probably shouldn't read it to your kids.

Received for review.

While the author's first book was genuinely hilarious this was good but just not quite up to the level of the original.  It felt like a slightly disappointing second season of a beloved television show.

In any case, if you've read the author's first book you'll enjoy the same sense of humor here.  This is for everyone who has ever begged "Just a little bit.  Please?".   It's funny, and really rather sweet.

Obviously, this is not for children unless you're giving it to your children who already have children of their own.

I definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoyed Go the F*** to Sleep who are sure to thoroughly enjoy it.

★★★★ = Really Liked It
