I would suggest readers check out Armin Brott's, The Expectant Father, instead. It is also entertaining, but aimed more at the serious father, and it provides useful information.
Divided into forty chapters, one for each week of pregnancy, the reading is easy. I found myself heartily laughing,often. This book was given to me by my wife and we enjoyed the information it contained together. The book includes passages from couples interviewed specifically for their experiences related to pregnancy. Some of the incites the couples reveal are incredibly useful. In addition the quotes from the couples are very humorous.
This book alleviated my fears, taught me a great deal about pregnancy, enabled me to enjoy my wife's pregnancy with her,and made me a better spouse and future father.
I especially like the "Guy Talk" & "Girl Talk" inserts. This book is not just informative, it's a lot of fun. I recommend it highly and will be giving it as a gift to other "Dads-to-be".
And guys, the author is right. Reading this book really does put you in good graces with your partner. The morning after I read to my wife, I was awakened to a very pleasant surprise. We had just entered into our second trimester if you know what I mean.
The criticism here regarding the "no fat joke" is unwarranted as guys who really do not know better would not even touch a book like this; for starters, they would not get most of the jokes. From my experience the book is great for loosening up sometimes oh so serious and tight pregnancy discussions and at the same time getting some useful hints across. Both us and the other couple frequently were just laughing at the humor since it very often exactly describes the real-life situation and couples will recognize the little episodes experienced themselves after reading about them in an uncomplicated manner.

HORRID! DO NOT BUY! We would return it...had we not only spent $0.59 on it in the first place. This terrible book treats men like rude, purely self-centered, uninterested idiots. Read morePublished on Feb. 11 2004
This book treats men like we are idiots. Instead of providing worthwhile information the author fills the book with childish humor. I returned this book. Read morePublished on Jan. 15 2003 by Thomas & Mollie Burleson
Don't buy this book. It insults the intelligence of men AND women. Do yourself a favor and stick with "What to Expect...."Published on Nov. 8 1999
A noble effort and a great concept. However, with an over abundance of useless advice like "No fat Jokes." this is fatherhood for Idiots. Read morePublished on July 6 1999
I groaned when my wife got me this book. Then, to appease her, I started to read it. And liked it. It was readable and funny. And then I realized it was very helpful. Read morePublished on Dec 19 1998
