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.

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. It talks to fathers-to-be as if they are going to be put out and annoyed by the entire pregnancy experience. This book tries to be funny, but instead falls way short, ending up being flat out disrespectful.

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.
Instead I will read one of my wife's pregnancy books. Those books provide me with worthwhile information explaining what my wife is going through.
DO NOT waste your money.

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!

Don't buy this book. It insults the intelligence of men AND women. Do yourself a favor and stick with "What to Expect...."

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.
