Welcome to A Dude’s Guide: The New Dad’s Playbook, a fun and practical user’s manual for every dude who’s sweating all the small and big stuff about bringing up his little dude or dudette. Authors Richard Jones and Barry Robert Ozer say, “A Dude’s Guide to Babies is the book we wish we had we’d had when we first became dads.” In this guide, they share straight talk, helpful advice, and personal experiences to ease a new dad’s stress over cleaning, feeding, and playing with his newborn, as well as keeping his baby safe, happy, and not in need of too much therapy down the road. Packed with enjoyable top 10 lists and pop quizzes for new pops, A Dude’s Guide to Babies shows dudes how to see the funny side of fatherhood and to strengthen their Dad fu (think kung fu, only with more diapers and fewer mystical quests). This is a must-have book that tells what to really expect after all those months of expecting . . . and how to thrive (not just survive) as a new dad. With this playbook, dudes will have all the x’s and o’s they need to go from rookie dad to all-star!
