Book Review - Be Prepared: A Practical Handbook for New Dads

About the Book 
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.

My Take on the Book
This is a book that is very funny and lighthearted while providing valuable information for any new father. Saying this though, the book is a great read for both parents, and you will find that you can easily get through the book as it is engaging and the format is such that it makes it easy to read and easy to find the information that you are looking for too. The setup of the book reminds me of the old Boy Scout manuals which I think was the intention, and with all of the illustrations that are within the book you cannot go wrong! I highly recommend this book for any new parent-to-be!
