For most of the content, I would consider the material being presented as stuff that any decent human being would already be doing or that someone being a loving partner would already be involved with. This book really spells everything out, i.e. very verbose. I understand that the author is likely shooting for a over coffee/pints style-of-writing, but it just doesn't work for me.
It might work for other people out there, but I can't recommend it as I'd like more fulfilling content.
I'm in the process of buying a different book and wanted to leave my review of this one at the same time.
Best of luck to everyone out there involved in the process :)
This book was wonderful, not just for the father-to-be but also myself. It was pitched at a pleasant, friendly level and offered uncomplicated details and explanations of everything from early pregnancy to labour and even beyond birth. The book is full to the brim of useful advice both of a practical and emotional nature.
We have already recommended this book to other couples expecting their first children.
As first-time parents, I've felt relieved that he's found a book that he can read and get informed on what is going on
and what to expect. It's helped calm him down too! Great resource, well written. Recommend highly. (and I even sneak a read when he's not reading it!)
