Product Description

About the Author

Since the debut of his international bestseller The Blue Day Book, Bradley Trevor Greive has become a household name in more than 115 countries. A former Australian paratrooper, BTG left the army to pursue more creative misadventures. He has been bitten by wild monkeys and rabid bats and was accepted into Russia’s cosmonaut training program–though those incidents were, by and large, unrelated. BTG spends most of his time in a tiny Tasmanian hamlet.

I just read another review from an expecting woman with her first child and was sad to hear that she was depress after reading this fabulous book. Honestly women have no idea to what being a MOTHER is until you are one!!! this book was a blessing to me as now I know that in some aspects of raising a child, I am not the only one who thinks that some days are horrible! I am buying these books for my mohter & mother in law this year for mothers day and I know that since they are MOTHERS they will be able to understand and appreciate this book and reflect on the wonderfull journey that they have as MOTHERS! THIS BOOK MAKES MOTHERS HAPPY EVEN WHEN THE GOING IS TOUGH AND I RECCOMEND THAT YOU GET IT FOR ALL YOUR MOTHERS!!!

I read a copy of a friend's THE MEANING OF LIFE, and loved it. So, I went out and bought a copy of it for my daughter. I was thrilled to see THE INCREDIBLE TRUTH ABOUT MOTHERHOOD and thought it would make a very nice gift, as she has a two year old. I wrote a note in the front of it for her. Then I read it. Needless to say, I am angry at myself for writing in it so I can't take it back. I was actually offended by a picture of animals having sex. I am not a prude, but, I felt this was out of place in a book like this. I also don't understand why he chose to use profanity (mild, but still...) I will not give the book to my daughter. Actually, I don't know what to do with it. It was a waste of my money.

I love every book this man has put out! The pictures are priceless but then you add the little comments at the bottom and they become hysterical. I found the comment from the lady who's mom bought her the book because she was expecting her first child very comical and have a feeling that once she has that child, she will find the humor in the book because almost every single page has happened at one point or another if you have children. Kids are hard work but they are also the single most important thing you'll ever do and are an endless source of joy. I give these books as gifts a lot and they always bring a smile and most of the time, burtst of laughter.

Format: Hardcover
the "foul" language mentioned in other reviews consists of 2 or 3 "..."s, nothing vulgar.
there is a picture of 2 animals having .... but it more looks like the male bear is giving mom a backrub with a caption about parents being walked in on during "intimate moments".
this book tends to highlight the *wonderful* points of parenthood. i have a 2 year old and i was able to relate to most of the book. i think it is a wonderful book that looks at the not-so-pretty truths of parent/motherhood. it is a great laugh and would make a great gift for any parent or parent-to-be.

I'm expecting my first child, and my mother gave me this book because she knows I like animals (especially the cute babies!) After reading the book, though, I was downright depressed to the point of tears about becoming a mother. It basically tells you your children will be horrible terrors and not ever appreciate a thing you do, and that your husband will be even worse! The writing is bitter and twisted compared to the pictures. I do give a couple stars, because the pictures are cute if you don't read the text.

What a waste... This book is a simple collection of about 80 black and white photographs of animals with childish little comments at the bottom of each page. It's like an expensive greeting card. It's a shame that trees had to be killed to make the paper for this silly book. I, like many others, bought into the hype surrounding this series of books by the same author, and now I feel totally cheated because of it. I'm returning all of the books I bought by him.
