Customer Review

on 15 November 2006
The entire bibliography of recommended further reading at the back of this book consisted of one book each by Tony Parsons, Ben Elton and Nick Hornby. If that fact alone doesn't immediately put you off ever reading a single syllable of Jon Smith, then you might enjoy this book.

"The Bloke's Guide to Pregnancy" isn't entirely without merit - 200 or 300 pages matily exhorting you to spend a little less time in the pub and a bit more time helping with the washing up can only have a positive overall impact on society. Whether it will have a positive impact on your experience as an expectant father depends on whether or not you view Messrs Parsons, Elton and Hornby as spokesblokes for 21st century Britain. And whether or not you forgive clunky, cliche-ridden prose and widespread apostrophe abuse.

If your immediate response to the news of your partner's pregnancy wasn't "oh no, what about drinking beer and watching football?" then read a real book on pregnancy that treats both of you as intelligent human beings. "Your Pregnancy Bible: The Experts' Guide to the Nine Months of Pregnancy and the First Weeks of Parenthood" by Anne Deans is particularly recommended.
