Baby Owner’s Manual

(Rockpool Publishing,  $29.99)

A humorous operating guide for fathers-to-be, Steve Bedwell’s Baby Owner’s Manual is sure to bring a smile to any new dad’s face, likening a new baby to the other love in a man’s life: no, not his wife, his car!  This essential handbook, packaged as a retro 60’s car manual, covers everything from delivery of baby from Mother Nature Heavy Industries, regular servicing of your baby, standard equipment, the cooling system and liquid waste disposal, warning signs, even optimising economy and getting the most out of your baby. This is a must-have book for any new father or father-to-be. It had me laughing from beginning to end.
