About the Book

A veritable boot camp for dads-to-be and new fathers, this hilarious, pertinent, and indispensable guide features monotony-busting outings for each month, products dads can't live without, and ideas for making toys out of household items.

Book Synopsis

An indispensable survival manual for men 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.

"If you're a new dad, keep a copy of Be Prepared by your bedside. It's funny, informative, and -- let's be honest -- it's not like you're going to be sleeping anyway."
--Paul Reiser, New York Times bestselling author of Babyhood
