Publisher's Summary

The Sunday Times Top Ten Best-Seller
'The night before Charlie was born, I had this dream. I dreamt that I was a soldier riding into battle, completely naked, and on the back of a large, inflatable duck.'
Matt Coyne has become a hero for thousands of parents everywhere who are devoted followers of his popular blog, Man vs Baby.
This is his book, and it is not your average parenting guide. It's packed with completely impractical advice for the bewildered new mum or dad - stuff you won't find anywhere else: from Profanity Bingo for labour to a categorisation of various nappy disasters. But, more than that, it is the story of how becoming a parent is a kind of beautiful insanity - a thing that changes you.
Above all, Dummy will keep you laughing through the exhaustion, the mystery and the madness of bringing up your own children. This is the parenting book for real people.

Great, honest book.

Loved this book!

I have read/listened many books recently on babies as my wife is expecting soon and this has to be the best.

As he correctly says, there is no right or wrong way to bring your children up and his words on this are laugh out loud funny and heartwarming.

Honest, funny and perfect for new Dads

Great to discover this book. Perfect for new Dads but also those like myself with older children interested in reflecting on those early experiences of fatherhood.
