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.

Be Prepared by Gary Greenberg is an all-in-one guide for new dads for whom reading books is not necessarily a regular activity. Contained within, and easily accessible, is all the valuable info a busy dad could need at any point during your newborn's first year—from those sleep-deprived first weeks to the here-before-you-know-it monthly milestones. And to make things a little bit more fun to read, the chapters are sprinkled with silly drawings, bullet lists and plenty of anecdotal humor.

I'm T-minus just a few weeks to becoming a dad myself and I plan on keeping this book handy throughout the upcoming year.
