Dads Know Best

Dads Know Best

by Don Miggs




Congratulations! We bet you haven’t heard that before. Everyone’s probably been congratulating you for a while now. After all, you’re getting to meet a person you helped make. That’s exciting, but it’s also shit-your-pants terrifying. Before, you were only responsible for finding the best deal on beer at the grocery store, but dads have real responsibilities. Like keeping a person alive, for example. Don’t worry though: this kind of insanity is normal. You’re not alone. Dads Know Best--the first book in the Know Best series--is a real-talk book about parenting. No sugar-coating. No pandering. No clichés. Just honest advice from two fathers who did everything wrong but ended up getting it right. From navigating epic diaper blowouts, to managing pregnancy cravings, to learning about the wonderful world of nipples, Don Miggs and John Luzzi have you covered. They’ll teach you how to be there for your baby mama and take care of your kid without losing your mind in the process. After all, they know best.

About the Author

John Luzzi lives in Seattle, Washington with his wife Trisha and son Cruz. He’s spent most of his years far away from anything to do with scholarly interests, instead pursuing his passion for music as a guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Not being able to get through a single book on parenting but still wanting to be a better dad than everyone he knew, he was driven to seek out brutally honest advice on fatherhood. On reflection, he probably should have kept some of this to himself.

Don Miggs isn’t an author, but he plays one in the Knows Best book series. His love of giving his opin - ion works well for this, as well as for his day job as a songwriter, producer, and performer. Fueled by the love of his wife, Lisa, and their two boys, Milo and Jasper, Don believes he can do most anything he tries and they’ll be there when he falls flat on his face.
