As hilarious as it is universal, each chapter presents a common parenting scenario with advice on how to get through it in the easiest and most efficient way possible. With chapters such as "How to Sleep Until 9 A.M.

My Thoughts About The Book:  I have to admit that I was less than thrilled about the title of the book.  I believed myself to be a good parent....but had to admit that babies and children do not come with an instruction manual.  It was because of that that I chose to review this book.  It was hilarious!  It was a humorous group of anecdotes at how to survive life with a baby in the house.  The preliminary quiz brought tears to my eyes.    One of the questions was, "if your kid does have a 100 degree fever do you debate keeping him at home.  I was laughing uncontrollable at that moment.  I had a child who thought of every illness under the sun to come home from school and one day I told the teacher, "don't call me unless she has a fever of 105 and is writhing in the floor in convulsions."  The teacher did not appreciate my sarcasm.  I thought I was a scream.  This book was my kind of book.
