June 13, 2011 at 8:41 PM ET

When we first told you about Adam Mansbach's bedtime story for parents back in April, "Go the F--- to Sleep" had just gone to print. Seemingly overnight, it shot up to No. 1 on the Amazon pre-order list, his publisher bumped up the release date to June 14 and the book has even been optioned for a movie! Apparently parents world-wide can relate to his simple, satirical tale.

More than 60,000 TODAY Moms readers voted, and 86 percent deemed it hilarious. Nine percent found it appalling, and 5 percent said they were too sleep-deprived to know what to think. For all the  sleep-deprived parents out there, past and present, here's a treat: Author Adam Mansbach giving a dramatic reading of "Go the F--- to Sleep" in the TODAY green room.
