    An indispensable survival manual for guys entering the trenches of fatherhood,Be Prepared is loaded with one-of-a-kind insights, MacGyver-esque tips and tricks, and no-nonsense advice for mastering the first year as a dad.

    Finally, a book that teaches men all the things they really need to know about fatherhood...including how to:

    -Change a baby at a packed sports stadium
    -Create a decoy drawer full of old wallets, remote controls, and cell phones to throw baby off the scent of your real gear
    -Stay awake (or at least upright) at work
    -Babyproof a hotel room in four minutes flat
    -Construct an emergency diaper out of a towel, a sock, and duct tape

    Packed with helpful diagrams and detailed instructions, and delivered with a wry sense of humor,Be Prepared is the ultimate guide for sleep-deprived, applesauce-covered fathers everywhere.

    • Great!

      There is so much great information in here to help anyone (father and mother) with taking care of a new baby! A lot of it is stuff that you probably have never even thought about doing.

    • perfect for new dads!

      My husband was given this book when we got pregnant with our first, and we have since given copies to other new parents. It's a GREAT tool for dads, especially for those who are not otherwise big readers. The information is presented in a hilarious way (we were in tears from laughter at various parts), but is actually very practical! Each chapter is brief, to-the-point, and contains lots of pictures (something my hubby considers to be a must). Have fun and enjoy!

    • Fabulous New Father Gift

      This book was given to my son in law, when he was anticipating the birth of the first child. He carried it with him everywhere--reading it on the train, at work to others--etc. This is the BEST gift for a soon to be father ever.
