How to Dad is the perfect book for new and soon-to-be fathers — because babies don't come with instructions (and if they did, you wouldn't read them anyway).

That's huge, because you could spend hundreds of hours reading thousands of pages on what you should expect when you bring a new life into this world, but you're a busy guy and you're barely halfway through this paragraph and already getting antsy. Thankfully, this book is a powerful weapon in your ongoing fight to get up to speed on what it means to be a father.

How to Dad distills essential tips and tricks for caring for your progeny (and partner) into detailed illustrations and simple descriptions of complex concepts as you can spend less time with your nose in a book and more time earning that #1 Dad coffee mug. Starting with the positive pregnancy test and covering every major moment you'll encounter through your child's first birthday, this illustrated guide includes expert insight from doctors and specialists as well as timeless advice from actual parents.

A written reference book could never hope to cover every aspect of what it meant to be a dad. That's why this one has pictures.
