What parent isn't occasionally frustrated by their child's bedtime antics? A new book by Adam Mansbach provides some comic relief. A pirated PDF version of the book titled “Go The F**k to Sleep," has gone viral through email and Facebook — catapulting the book to the top of Amazon's best-seller list, despite the fact that it won't be released for sale for another month.

We talk to Reyhan Harmanci, a culture editor and writer for the Bay Citizen about why so many people are enchanted with the book.
