One of many parenting books focussed on Dad, Commando Dad is an easy to read and entertaining advice manual with a dose of military order and preparedness thrown in. There's lots of great tips and helpful comments but I found it a little lacking; both in terms of specific assurance and support and secondly whether this was a general manual to keep hold of during your child's early years, or whether it was a pick up and read in one go.

First part wher was described how to prepare and how to handle first 24 hours were very good bu later like diagnostic of illness and child psychology -- there are a much more better books.

In Commando Dad, former army man and current father Neil Sinclair presents his “basic training” for fathers in the style of an army handbook.

While this is a fun theme, Sinclair does present this dad-orientated book in a make friendly way; it is pit together with the concise bullet points that fathers will appreciate.

This is a fantastic reference book for people that haven't a clue where to start.
The book is broken down into bite-sized logical chapters and the bullet points make it easy to find key information fast.

I definitely recommend this book for anyone (particularly expectant dads) who are expecting.

This book is aimed at birth to three years - so is also ideally suited for the first time adopters.

Very concise, down-to-earth book for fresh fathers, aided by clear structure and good dose of wit. Perhaps a little basic and not very detailed - but great as a very first book that a new father reads.

This was the first book that I read on my journey to be a father for the first time. It was easy to follow and really well written. Commando Dad taught me a lot, for such a short book. I highly recommend it.

It's a great book for new parents (both fathers and mothers). It's funny with amazing advises and an easy read. Very practical. I guess it helps that was written by a dad and not a doctor.
