Format: Paperback
My wife is expecting our first baby and someone kindly gave me this book for Xmas. It made me laugh and reassured me at the same time. Look, to be honest, I am petrified about becoming a dad for the first time. I hadn't a clue what to expect and this book did ease a lot of my fears. It's no picnic going through this stuff for the very first time - and my wife says we are going to have lots of babies.....I hope there is a follow up - what to expect during the first year, that sort of thing because, to put it bluntly, I'm a bit s**t scared of that part of the process as well. Good book. Worth a read even if you aren't a lad about to become a dad. Made me laugh and it's well written - and I loved the bomb (you'll have to read it to understand...)

Format: Paperback
This is a very interesting and funny book. As a mother of two small children I could relate to so much from begining to end. Some parts were so funny my sides hurt. It is informative with out being patronising and full of great tips. It was great to get an insight of how a man feels while his partner is going through some of the most amazing chances. I have recommend this book to a lot of people, one of whom is going from being 'a lad to a dad'and is full of fears and worries. I know this book will help him. I loved this book, it well worth reading even after having children and a few of my friends will be getting a copy for christmas.

This book is a fabulous "survival guide" if you know of any male who has just found out that he is about to be a father. From a woman's point of view, it is a fantastic insite into just how your man may be feeling about the pregnancy and the emotional turmoil he may be facing. A witty account of an expectant father's feelings throughout his wife's pregnancy which will have you laughing as well as some important information about help available to you. An absolute must for any couple you know who are expecting a child.

I got two books as an expectant father, this was one of them. The one was Fatherhood: The Truth
Out of the two I much preferred the latter. Lad to Dad is too specific (it centres too much around his experience),the author always sounds a bit too overwhelmed and the book seems to have been vetted by his partner as it's far too soft. It also stops as soon as the birth has taken place and gives no insight into being a dad, just the journey. Fatherhood on the other hand had me creasing with laughter and not wanting to share any of it with my wife! I wouldn;t class myself as a lad but 'lad to dad' was boring and the jokes were very dull compared with fatherhood.

This book had me rolling on the floor with laughter in parts. Being a mum already I totally empathised with the author and his wife throughout his account. The help notes are just what couples may need to cope with the problems encountered in pregnancy.
Both funny and informative - I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Format: Paperback
Firstly the book is very short, I read it in a morning.

Secondly, it doesn't quite know what it's aiming for.
It tries to be a parenting guide for fathers to be, but is a bit thin on (useful) information.
It tries to be funny, but jokes are few and far between. It is very tame and the author could hardly be classed as a "Lad".

It is more-so just one mans (short) story of his partners pregnancy, far from the "ultimate-guide" it claims to be.
