About the Author

"A very funny but educational bad-ass book.... If you're a new dad, or about to become a new dad you should totally get this book." --The Bloggess

"Required for any new parent. The New Dad Dictionary is a combination of desk top reference guide to some of the more esoteric parenting terms as well as a collection of hilarious insight into the world of being a dad." --Geekadelphia

"The New Dad Dictionary provid[es] genuinely helpful advice without getting overly clinical, and with enough humor to keep you wanting to read more.... If you're going to become a new dad imminently...having this book by your side...will help make the transition easier."

"New dads now have one handy guide to help them figure out the difference between meconium and Mongolian spots. They can read textbook definitions and cheeky 'dadfinitions, '...and, of course, keep their sanity and good humor intact."

"Be sure to take this book with you to every parenting class that you are going to. The great thing about The New Dad Dictionary is that it gives you the real definition of the word then it gives you the dadfinition. If you are a new dad or having your second, third or twenty-third, you are going to want to buy The New Dad Dictionary by Chris Illuminati." --The Rookie Dad

"Anybody that puts the focus on their kids and adds a dash of humor is alright by me. When Chris uses personal stories and experience for the breakdowns the book shines and feels genuine. His commentary in many of the examples are identical to my own reactions, which made me laugh. It is nice to have a book written in a male tone for a male audience." --BabyCenter

"Humorist Chris Illuminati offers fellow fathers a crash course in today's parenting language and spells it out in real-guy talk with a hefty dose of HA-HAs along the way. Along with the humor, dads will gain some valuable know-how about the kinds of changes to expect from their babies--and Mom!--from before birth to the early childhood years." --Nashville Parent

"The New Dad Dictionary gives you everything you need to know to talk the talk of new parenthood."
