Reviews

"Doug Moe has written a delightful and helpful book that gives real advice about the Wild West world of raising children."--Amy Poehler "actress, comedian, and New York Times bestselling author of Yes Please "
"Thankfully for new fathers like me, Doug Moe knows it all, from little kids doing pee-pee to big kids doing homework. It's essential reading for dads and future dads."--Michael Showalter "writer/ director and cocreator of Wet Hot American Summer "
"Doug Moe is the second-best father I know. Even if the only thing you get from this book is a good time, then Doug has done more for fathers than any other book of its kind."--Rob Corddry "actor and comedian, The Daily Show and Ballers "
"I am about to have a baby and I am terrified and feel like an idiot! Then I read Doug Moe's Man vs. Child! Now, I am prepared to have a baby. I am slightly less terrified and I am still an idiot! Thanks, Doug!"--Bobby Moynihan "actor and comedian, Saturday Night Live "
"Hurry up and buy this book! I didn't get a chance before my baby came and now I'm screwed! Help! I haven't slept in weeks and now I don't know what I'm doing! Dammit, Doug, why didn't you write this while I still had time to read books "--Rob Huebel "actor and comedian, Human Giant and Transparent "
"Man vs. Child is a hilariously honest look at parenting that even moms can appreciate. I mean, any book that encourages new dads to 'vacuum and be nice' is one I can get behind!"--Ilana Wiles "blogger and author of The Mommy Shorts Guide to Remarkably Average Parenting "
"Moe 'describes the awed affection new fathers may have for their children with relatable humor and genuine insight, offering a promising resource for the curious and the clueless.'"--The New Yorker
"From tackling toddler meltdowns to bringing up baby in any conversation, comedian Doug Moe's irreverent take on the absurdity of fatherhood is a refreshing read for new dads. It feels like you're chatting with a friend who admittedly doesn't know everything, but does know exactly what you're going through."--Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine
"This new book from comedian and actor Doug Moe is light on advice, heavy on funny, which should hit just the right spot for new dads."--Cool Mom Picks
"Yes, it's just one man's point of view, but we have a feeling your guy will find more than enough in common with this hilarious dad-in-training."--PureWow
