Andrew Cullen writes elegantly, funnily and above all honestly about the experience of pregnancy from the male perspective in this book. There are now a couple of other books around by men about pregnancy, but Cullen's has got to be the best. He says at one point that 'We tend to hide the true extent of our feelings, even from our friends, even from ourselves ... The emotional vicissitudes of a single day would exhaust us if we paid attention to them all.' But he makes a determined effort at paying attention here and it's well worth it - and never exhausting.
As the father of two growing children this book took me back with a jolt of recollection to those days of fear, hope and uncertainty that are the world of the expectant parent.
