"This laugh-out-loud hilarious book is mandatory reading for parents, and should be taught in schools as the "cautionary tale" portion of Sex Ed. Run don't walk to buy it, and if you're a baby with lethal parents, crawl don't roll." --Rob Kutner
"The "s-a-g-e" in Jacob's middle moniker indicates exactly that. He is a whimsically wise and hysterically funny fellow whom any child (or book buying adult) would be wise to listen to." --Dennis Miller
"If you don't buy this book and then your baby dies, how are you going to feel? Pretty bad, I imagine." --Larry Doyle (I Love You Beth Cooper; Go, Mutants!; The Simpsons)
About the Author
Jacob Sager Weinstein has written for "The New Yorker," McSweeney's, and Cracked.com, and is a former contributor to The Onion. He's also written for HBO, NBC, and the BBC. Jacob and his wife live in London with their two children, neither of whom has ever been lost at sea or stuck in the middle of a buffalo stampede. Also, that one time he wasn't paying attention and the baby carriage rolled into the Regent's Park Duck Pond, neither of his kids was in it. What more could you want from a parenting expert?

I went back after I read the book and reread all the "Dan" sidebars. "Dan" underscores the sexist and insulting way the parenting industry demeans the father and expects the mother to be perfect.
This book might have been far more useful to me as a new parent than all the serious baby guides. Had I gotten it as a shower gift, it would have made me laugh at how seriously I was taking the whole thing and how insane the babycare industry has gotten.
first there are several pictures such as how to install a carseat. This could be funny but there is no way to zoom in and view the diagram so as a kindle reader it and many other diagrams were unreadable.
in addition while it was funny it was pretty short. I read it aloud on a roadtrip and we finshed in in about 1.5 hours.
finaly while it was funny i found the cover misleading I expected more good/bad photos and there wernt any.
with that being said it was a funny book and i enjoyed reading it.
