It really is a Haynes manual - looks like one, laid out like one - just hilarious. Very well received

I would’ve given the quality of product a 5 as the product itself was exactly as it looked on the website. However, the cover was not smooth and glossy because of what appeared to looked like glue residue on it. I had to give it a wipe and thankfully it did all come off and now looks and feels as it should.
The book itself is very good and funny for any parent or parent to be!

Very good it's funny an informative. Ideal offbeat gift.
Cannot fault the service overall. They had to redo the book as there was a defect but customer service were so easy to contact and they resolved the issue in a few hours. Agree with some others, it would be nice to have a tracking code for Royal Mail but received an email telling me my book is on the way so I knew roughly to expect it in a few days. Overall can't fault the service.
