Welcome to this guide to your New Human from me, Jeremy Corbett. I'll start with a disclaimer. It's not a guide. If you choose to follow some of the things that I have done, then it's on you, pal. That's like following someone into battle without checking if he's armed or even if he's on your side. This book is largely stories of my experiences, as a man, in the creation and maintenance of a New Human. She's an awesome one, too. And given that she is so awesome, I felt it only fair that I should share my wisdom with you, so that you too can have the best human possible. Of course my scheme is foolproof, because once you have your New Human you will most definitely think he or she is the most amazing creation ever. You will consider your investment in reading this book as time and money well spent. So whether you are a long-time parent, a new parent, a surprised parent, avoiding being a parent or even thinking about becoming a parent, I wish you all the best in your contribution to the continuation of the species.
A stand-up comedian, radio and television presenter, computer programmer and Leo, Jeremy Corbett was born in Westport, grew up in Palmerston North and now lives in Auckland. You most likely know him as the host of 7Days. He has also hosted Deal Or No Deal in New Zealand and has given his kiss of death to various other TV projects. Most recently he has starred in the sitcom The Radio. In 2011 he retired as the host of More FM Auckland's breakfast show after 18 years. His entry was removed from Wikipedia due to 'No indication of importance'. (Apparently it's now been reinstated, which actually makes him feel less special.)
