The Latest Twist in Self-help: The RoadMap™: Baby's First Year to The Rescue!

A new mother who is busy busy busy accessorizing her newborn does not have time to read a 5 lb. book on ANYTHING, let alone slogging through 8000 Google hits on “WHY is he Crying?” or “does the Devil wear diapers?”- she would miss all the Groupon sales! Unfolded, The RoadMap™ becomes a colorful two-page cheat sheet - almost large enough to hide behind (and, no, it does NOT make you look fat) - that distills the first 12 months of parenthood down to the most important facts and tips in memorable and humorous bite-sized pieces. (Just a metaphor! Do NOT chew on The RoadMap™). Every square inch is packed with helpful information, charming illustrations and just enough humor to put life in perspective for sleep-deprived parents - including a necessary legal disclaimer releasing the authors from ALL responsibility. ALL. Completely. No joke. And No Chewing!! How many times do we have to remind you?!

Meet the Author

Written By a Real Mom...

Jane Terjung, retired ex-vintage video game programmer (circa 1980s) turned stay-at-home mom, has a daughter: still alive, recently graduated from College AND ACTUALLY EMPLOYED - so you know her advice is AWESOME - plus grandchildren she visits with adult supervision. She hopes her nitty-gritty baby guide helps you lower the bar - but first baby-proof the vodka! - and survive your baby's first year or at least realize it's hopeless. Again: an exaggeration. Do NOT give up hope - eventually they DO stop crying. Then they grow up and LEAVE. In a GOOD Way. REALLY. Miles and miles away. They promise to come back. There's always The Holidays. Once a year. Or Hypnotherapy. Twice a week.. Oh, I give up.

...But Engineered By a Real Man

Steve Tatsumi, Entrepreneurial Publisher (aka ex-vintage video game programmer and ex-coworker with Jane), invented The RoadMap™ design, hoping to rescue us all from The Information Age and its avalanche of data. Who can forget that disturbing YouTube video on Tweets and Global Warming? (SHUDDER) Still gives me chills. Besides: studying a map looks way more cool, organic and manly than checking your man-purse for your iPad... As the Man from Dos XX's might say "...I don't always raise babies, but when I do, I use The RoadMap™!!"
