Praise for Nespoli’s Daddy Versus The Suck Monster

“…the author’s absurdist knack for overstatement makes some of the most offensive jokes and juvenile gags forgivable and even endearing. Underneath the frivolity are a remarkable sincerity and the trustworthy, progressive voice of experience. He offers new dads legitimate tips and advice, as well as commiseration about mistakes, sacrifices and morbid thoughts… this memoir could have been the male equivalent to What to Expect When You’re Expecting.” – Kirkus Review
