A drawing showing you what a real newborn looks like, warts and all. If you've seen the clues scattered about the web, you'd surmise that I am inbound to fatherhood. Very practical I hope. Even though this is an easy read, it is unclear when a new dad or parent in the trenches would find time to study this or why he would do so above showering, sleeping, etc. And a new mother. It's funny, informative, and -- let's be honest -- it's not like you're going to be sleeping anyway.
The book does a good job of telling you the basics of what you NEED to know, and it does it in a funny and easy to read way. A little bit dated, but good practical advice with a little humor thown in. And I could see why. Hayden's drawings strike just the right balance between textbook-boring and tongue-in-cheek funny, depicting everything from a sketch of a bottle of teething gel to a drawing of an exhausted father snoozing in a business meeting.
While the title makes it sound dry, this proud papa guide is really funny and a bit cheeky, offering up real facts and advice with attitude and humor.

Probably best to review before delivery. The 's wholesomely satirical images and asides conjure the Fallout franchise and left me appreciating how apocalyptic a journey infancy ca This offers more levity, irreverence and pragmatism than a typical "what to expect, the miracle of childbirth" type of book.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Or should I say, complete with splotchy skin, a smushed-up nose, and a cone-shaped head. Books of the Week.
