I bought this for a friend who was to be a first time dad, and when it arrived I read half of it without being able to put it down, even though I wasn't a Dad and had no immediate intention of becoming one! So when my wife became pregnant for the first time I went straight online and bought it. It's written by a father of three, so you get the impression throughout that he knows what he's talking about, unlike some similar books. It's informative, although it's written by an American, so odd bits aren't relevant for UK readers, but this is only a minor issue. The best thing, though, is the humour - I laughed out loud many a time while reading it. Highly recommended.
