About The Book

An honest bar-table discussion for the freaked out soon-to-be-dads of the world.

Finally a parenting book that expectant fathers will actually read!

In The New Dad from A to Z, author and filmmaker Dan Consiglio offers freaked-out, first-time dads-to-be an honest, bar-table discussion about the reality that awaits them. No guilt trips, no only-parents-get-it inside jokes, no inane sarcasm, just the straight dope refreshingly mixed with some offbeat humor to ease the crippling anxiety.

Feeling less like reading a book and more like having a conversation with a friend over a good beer, The New Dad from A to Z cuts through all the silliness, scare tactics, and obfuscation found in other books targeting dads-to-be, instead giving them as close of a reality dose as they can handle before that bundle of joy drops into their world.

About The Author

 Dan Consiglio writes for a living and a hobby. By day, he creates commercials, print ads, Web sites, and more for brands large and small. Outside of work, Dan has written and directed a feature-length film, which received nice acclaim. But mainly Dan is a dad. And as a storyteller, Dan loves to share the hilarious highs and lows of parenthood to any and all who will listen. But seriously, he's not that annoying.
