Are you a new dad looking for a playbook on babies?

There's a new parenting book on the market called "A Dude's Guide To Babies: The New Dad's Playbook." It is written by Richard Jones and Barry Robert Ozer and breaks down raising a baby in dude-speak.

Jones told CBS-Chicago that when he began taking care of his kids he had no idea what to do and couldn't find a child rearing book that didn't bore him.

"We tried to make a book that you could read on the can," jokes Jones in the video above.

The straight-talking dads, who have seven children between them, touch on child-rearing hot topics, such as what to do in the delivery room, the lowdown on baby poop, and questions to ask your child's doctor. The book also features quizzes.

Dads, would you read this book?

And if you are a new dad, congratulations! Share a Daddy & Me photo with us.
