Format: Paperback
This book is actually like a series of jokes about the protypical disinterested, stupid male and he how he survive his wife's pregnancy by feigning interest. In one passage about dealing with your wife's changing body, the author lists "Avoid fat jokes." C'mon, are we so stupid that we need to read that?
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.

I found this book to be very informative for the Father-To-Be. Every first time father should read this book in order to understand and more thoroughly enjoy his wife's/partner's pregnancy.
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.

It's an easy read. Packed with insightful facts. I was reading it in bed one night and my wife (who is pregnant obviously) wanted me to read out loud to her. After reading chapter 9 -- "Do I Look Fat and Other Trick Questions" to her she commented "That's Right! How does he know that?"
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.

I got this book from my wife when we were pregnant with our first. I have since lent it to another expecting couple and I am looking to give one as a gift soon.
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.

Having given birth to two children all I can say is "I wish my husband had this book when I was pregnant!" I bought this book for a co-worker whose wife is pregnant. It is so down-to-earth and humorous yet filled with all the medical info a guy needs to know. I couldn't believe how many of the issues and situations you go through in pregnancy mirrored what we went through; everything from the doctor's visits to baby showers to bringing home baby. Some of them may seem trivial but they are very real to a pregnant woman. I laughed out loud while reading this book. Run out and buy it for your husband now! Your pregnancy and relationship will benefit if he reads this book today!

I got this book for my husband. I wasnted him to experience the pregnancy as much as I will. He reads it and actually enjoys it. It is easy to read, so he doesn't have to spend hours trying to get through it. And it tells him everything you would want him to know. I particulary like the suggestions about how he should act and treat the mom-to-be. Its funny, practical, and down to earth. Some things are a bit stereotypical and it sometimes generalizes, but for the most part I was very happy. It makes it easier when I talk to him, cause he can actually relate.

By A Customer on June 25 1999
Format: Paperback
This book contains little information for the expectant father, that isn't already known or common sense. The author wants you to think this book, by a guy, is all guys need to know about the birthing process, but it seems like this book was written more to appease women, under the disguise of a guy's book. If you want a book that let's your wife think your interested, but contains little useful information and is easy to read, then this is it.
