Man vs. Baby: The Chaos and Comedy of Real-Life Parenting

Matt Coyne’s “Man vs. Baby” is a hilarious and insightful part memoir, part tell-it-like-it-is parenting book. “Man vs. Baby” took flight after Coyne’s viral Facebook post comparing his diaper-changing skills to that of a Formula One pit crew, and other on-point observations on being a new dad to his friends and family. The post went viral and even reached Ashton Kutcher, who called it “one of the best descriptions of fatherhood” he’s ever read. This 272-page book makes a great gift for both expectant and current moms and dads. “Man vs. Baby” covers it all from what Coyne wished childbirth classes taught, like the amount of profanity that’s used during labor and the sight of placenta, to a baby’s milestones. Surprise the new Dad in your life with this fun and relatable book—hopefully he has time to get through a few pages before the baby starts crying again! Buy Here
