More About the Author

I've been a Commando, a PCSO in the Met and a security guard at the UK Mission to the UN in New York, but it was the terrifying experience of bringing my first son back from the hospital that prompted me to write Commando Dad: Basic Training. Based on the 'Basic Battle Skills' that I was given when I joined the army, Basic Training is packed with practical tips and advice, and equips men with all the skills they need to be hands-on-dads. It is supported by my website: www.commandodad.com, that not only has extra resources (such as videos about how to hold, feed, burp, change and bath your baby troopers) but also forums where dads can share tips and advice with me - and other Commando Dads. It is now also available as a pocket book version (the first year).

I have now written a new book to prepare men for fatherhood: Commando Dad Raw Recruits. It uses the 266 days (and counting) that separate men from dads, to prepare them - practically, physically and where possible, emotionally - for the adventure ahead. It covers everything from the physical and emotional development of your BT (Baby Trooper) and CO (Commanding Officer or mum-to-be); to pregnancy symptoms you don't need to worry about (and those you do); what happens in the appointments; ante natal classes; what childbirth is actually like and what happens next; and much more. It also features advice and tips from other new dads.

I have written the two books that I wish I'd have been given as a dad-to-be and a new dad.

After 12 years as a stay at home dad to my three troopers, Sam, Jude and Liberty, I'm still learning new things about parenting. You can reach me on the forums on my website, and also read about my adventures in parenting in Telegraph Men: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/journalists/neil-sinclair/

Format: Paperback
This book is straight forward and written using down to earth words not long unpronounceable ones. After reading other books this is by far the best. As a serving soldier I found this book amusing as well and greatly detailed. With the army style instruction and links to video on the website any man will find what he needs. If I was to sum this book up in one word it's MEGA.

I have recently found out I am going to be a dad for the first time and straight away set out to read as much about it as I could.

This book is easy to read and gives extremely clear and simple instructions on how to deal with almost every daunting scenario I expect to be faced with as a new dad.

I can't recommend this book enough for soon to be new dads.

I bought this for my husband as we're expecting our first child. It's very succinct and focuses on the practical aspects of baby care. Many of the books targeted at new Dads seem to be the Loaded magazine guide to fatherhood and are full of unhelpful misogynistic rubbish. This book is helping us to feel more prepared and more confident.

I found this book for my husband, and though it might be a lighthearted approach to early babycare. He has since read it from cover to cover (having struggled to get interested in any other babycare books), and has found it full of great tips and advice. Would definitely recommend to other couples!

I bought this for my son who is soon to be a dad for the first time. He thought it was very funny. We both loved its light hearted approach to the introduction of the daunting prospect of fatherhood. Mission accomplished.

A straight forward read which strips right through the superfluous info found in most other daddy manuals. Loved the organisation, concise descriptions with checklist supports. Easy to absorb when under the 6 month countdown. Strongly recommended and great present for Friday-night-wingmen friends on the path to fatherhood.

Bought as a gift for my friend who's baby is due any time now, I have heard great things about this book and my friend advises it simplifies the tasks a dad will need to take when looking after his mobile trooper!
