Format: Paperback
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.

I bought this for my husband when I found out I was pregnant and it is a really funny read.It covers pregnancy, the birth and the after effects and gives real information in a light easy to swallow format.Favourite section was on names not to call a child(Elvis,Hitler)Downside is that the author is australian and so some of the information doesn't apply in this country, but worth a read all the same.

I found it a bit shallow and patronising to be honest. And the implication that family pets should be turfed out when the baby is born was irresponsible to say the least.

I ordered this the start of january and still haven't received it! very disappointed, says it hasn't even been dispatched. I ordered this for my partner when i was 6 months pregnant so he could read up before our baby is due, our baby is due in 4 weeks so i went out and got the same book but from somewhere who has better service and faster dispatch. All in all can't fault the book just this seller.
