Matt Coyne is a forty-something-year-old graphic designer from Sheffield, England. He is the wildly popular author of the blog and book, Man vs. Baby.
"A great gift for any expectant or new parent, regardless of gender
or parenting role ... Matt is simply hysterical."
"If you're looking for something for a dad who's just emerging from the swampy fog of early parenting, Matt Coyne's book may be for you ... Coyne's book expands on that #realtalkdadlife attitude with a lively account of his first year of parenting."
"New parenthood is a stressful and confusing time, but author Matt Coyne takes it all into stride and infuses his experience with self-deprecating humor."
"Coyne's exasperated Facebook post about early parenthood (a baby's cry is like "having the inside of your skull sandpapered by an angry Viking") has been viewed 15 million times. That initial rant is now a funny memoir and parenting manual for the equally "inept.""
--The New York Times Book Review
