'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 tome. 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.

    Do not read while drinking hot coffee or you will end up wearing it. Trust me, I've learnt this one from experience. I looked like an dribbling simpleton after trying to read this book while drinking coffee on a train. Sitting giggling with coffee all down my shirt like I'd suddenly lost all capability for rational thought. The blog helped me realise that we weren't the only parents winging it, and somehow managing to get away with it. The book is a perfect extension of this.

    The ONLY book about being a new dad that matters. It speaks to the bewildered, semi-conscious, panic-stricken rabbit-in-headlights that we all are and tells you "you're doing absolutely fine."
