About the Author

Paul Merrill is a father of three boys and has learned the hard way about all the pratfalls and textbook errors that most dads make. To thoroughly research this book, he made most of them himself and is now pitied by everyone who knows him and, more crucially, his children. He has written extensively on fatherhood, and his next book, 1002 Funniest Man Facts is set to become the second most important book on any right-minded father’s bedside table.


Genius! Best book for dads ever


I wish I'd had this book when I became a dad. It's so so clever. Very biting wit, written with a humour that's rare these days - edgy and quite shocking in places, but a perfect present for any father.


I've bought this book as a gift again and again


Such a funny book! I picked it up because I was looking for a present to buy for a new dad and saw it in the window of a bookshop as I was passing. So funny that I ended up buying one as a gift and one for myself. I'll be buying more as gifts for all the men in my family who are dads - new and old.

Funniest ever fatherhood book


Get this for your husband - very, very funny, haven't read anything like it before. manages to be edgy and politically incorrect without being offensive. Straight up made me laugh a lot.


Such a funny book - all dads need this book!!


The perfect Father's Day present - witty, clever and surprisingly useful! My wife wondered why I was laughing so loudly. Normal parenting books can be very dry, but this just plays it for laughs all the way through. Highly recommended for all new dads or even people like me who have been through it yet still need to learn a few tricks.
