"A great book to read at bedtime. Even to kids." - Lenore Skenazy, America's Worst Mom
"This demonic book must be put to the flames of a thousand teeny candles, preferably with sparkles." - Bret Stephens, noted cancel culture opponent.
"Calm down? Anathema Getting hysterical during this pandemic is our only entertainment." - Lionel Shriver, noted opponent of practically everything.
"This book is good for your soul - even if you don't have one." - Peter Boghossian and James Lindsay, atheists
"Finally A funny book about COVID But the truth is, it's about a lot more than that. 'Calm the F**k Down' is good advice for a lot of what ails us, both culturally and politically. It's the perfect gift for the person in your life who seems to be freaking out about everything. Especially if that person is you." - Rob Long, Emmy-nominated screenwriter
"I used to work out, eat well and meditate to feel calmer during the pandemic, but who's got the time when we don't even know what day of the week it is? Now, I just read this book once daily before bed and I sleep like a baby... who wakes up in the middle of the night screaming and crying. Calm the F**k down is like a warm glass of milk before bed when you're lactose intolerant." - Melanie Notkin, best-selling author
"The pandemic starts and you decide it's time to finally get through War and Peace, The Power Broker or Proust with a dose each night before bed. Notice that this is somehow NOT quite what the doctor ordered as a tonic for lousy times? This book actually is. Save 100 Years of Solitude for weekend afternoons and use Calm the F**k Down to get through the week itself." - John McWhorter, Contributing Editor at the Atlantic and host of Slate's Lexicon Valley
"I love this book. When everything feels to be falling apart, out of control, it's a great reminder that laughter is what holds us together as individuals and as a community." - Lynn Goldsmith, award-winning artist
In our politically polarized era, at least we can all agree that Covid sucks. This politically incorrect bedtime book is for everyone living in the time of Covid. Absolutely profane and funny, it embraces the familiar and paranoid woes of making it through a day so you're able to go to bed for the night. Fall-on-the-floor funny (from a safe social distance), this book is a great gift for adults of all ages to help them take a deep breath of fresh (Covid-free) air, share a huge belly laugh, or get a good night's sleep.
