    Insightful, practical and made me laugh along the way.

    Insightful information on what happens in this periode of life with your partner - and yourself. It help immensly to feel prepared and ready for the next steps. And all over all is Marks style of writting a fantastic way to make that big topic easy to digest. Not only once it was planting a smile on my face while ready, even sometimes a big laughter. Great book that every upcoming father should enjoy reading.

    Its amazing the number of books that exist for parents to be. That number is substantially smaller when specific to fathers to be, and smaller again for one that really hits the mark. Mark's tone is perfect. Informative and relaxed, whilst also being genuinely hilarious. I've lost track of the number of times my wife and I (who I was reading it aloud to throughout the pregnancy) burst out laughing. More importantly, it takes its job seriously as attempting to inform you. He focuses on the reality Its amazing the number of books that exist for parents to be.

More importantly, it takes its job seriously as attempting to inform you. He focuses on the reality that things in your life will change forever and not all for the better. He explains things that some people no doubt think obvious but I certainly hadn't a clue about. It gets you to examine how your partner might be feeling and what you could dl to help that with genuinely practical tips. It was also so easy to read, in its (roughly) month by month progress. It was sometimes difficult not to plough on months ahead of where you are but we did manage to keep pace. This was recommended to me by a friend and I've no problems recommending it to other dads to be!

    Useful and a barrel of laughs. Not only was this an extremely informative book, it was also easy going. Never did it feel like a chore or another task to tick off the baby list. It was like sitting down with a mate (the one who has a whole wall dedicated to his extensive DVD collection), whose been through the pregnancy wars and done it, and are now having really useful chat. Plus by putting some of the stuff into practice I scored quite a few husband points along the way too. I'll be recommending Useful and a barrel of laughs.

    Really not too sure why this is a book only read once pregnant. I believe this should be read as a warning message in advance of any pregnancy. It is definitely rather horrifying to read/listen to it as a woman though the lenses of men (aka their partner) and realising what major blindspots and gaps in knowledge they have.

    The book is alright, some parts are funny and it has some interesting point. I didn't like the style of righting, very opinionated on some points. Overall is Okey, kind of basic, it's readable and is relatively short. The book is alright, some parts are funny and it has some interesting point.

    Excellent book, full of firsthand insight for new Dads. Having flicked through a few books on the topic aimed specifically at men, this is one of the few that (thankfully) dispenses with a lot of the patronising, laddy garbage you encounter in other examples.

    The only book on this subject I plan on reading but a really good one. Funny, simple and surprisingly deep.

    Practical book, not sure if the light hearted tone helps convey the key information or masks it.

    Very funny and insightful. Definitely helped me prepare for parenthood! And the 9months before...

    This is a very well put together book for expectant fathers. It helpfully covers the things we'll need to know, especially the types of things which we might not normally be told, such as the less romantic (more visceral) aspects of pregnancy and childbirth. It has chapters for each month of the pregnancy which are broken into sections about the physical changes that are happening to the mother and baby, things to expect during that time, things to consider and quotes from fathers who have been This is a very well put together book for expectant fathers.

It has chapters for each month of the pregnancy which are broken into sections about the physical changes that are happening to the mother and baby, things to expect during that time, things to consider and quotes from fathers who have been through it already. It's well researched with lots of useful stats and figures and a few interesting details which may not help you to be a parent but may make you sound clever at a tea-party (because that's the type of social event you attend now). It's written with a sort of jocular millennial tone which keeps it light but doesn't detract from the serious points. It's not exactly laugh-out-loud funny but helps to keep it interesting. From attending NCT classes I've realised that men, generally, find these things difficult to talk about without throwing in a few jokes to lighten the mood. There was one genuinely funny section and that was the quotes near the end about the fathers' different birth experiences. Some of these stories had me laughing out loud. Not necessarily because the birth itself was funny but because the father's interpretation of his usefulness or his contribution to it was. So, all-in-all, a very useful and readable book to help get you up to speed on the approaching birth of your little baby.

    This was the first and only proper book I read as an expecting father this year, prior to the recent birth of my daughter, on the subject of pregnancy. I made the right decision, because Woods writes about the pressures and complexities of pregnancy, along with impending parenthood with determined clarity and a wickedly droll sense of humor.

I made the right decision, because Woods writes about the pressures and complexities of pregnancy, along with impending parenthood with determined clarity and a wickedly droll sense of humor. The latter quality was key, because it diffused the considerable tension and anxiety I'd been accumulating week to week, month to month, as I prepared for my life to change forever. I am an English major and a creative writer, not a science-y type by either trade or disposition. I experience mild tremors if I cannot figure out how to put together a piece of furniture in 5 minutes, and still have anxiety dreams about periodic tables and pre-exam flashcards strewn about my college dorm. So while I was excited about meeting my baby after nine months and the wonderful prospect of fatherhood, I was more than a little worried about keeping track of all the new and formidably scientific terms that began flying my way shortly after that line appeared on my wife's pregnancy test. Woods' book has no shortage of the important medical and technical terms, but he packages it with wit, humor and empathy for the excited-yet-bewildered father-to-be. He comes off as a kindly uncle figure who takes you out to the pub, orders you a pint and claps you on the back afterwards, saying something to the effect of: "this will be the biggest, trickiest moment of your life, but you've got this, mate."

    This was the perfect companion to a quite eye opening 9 months. It is quite incredible how little I knew about the pregnancy process before picking up this book. The month by month style of the book really helps to break the information down nicely in order to retain the important bits and the authors humorous writing style ensures reading it is a pleasurable experience. I'd thoroughly recommend this book to all new dads as a starting point to supporting your wife through 10 tough months. The lit This was the perfect companion to a quite eye opening 9 months.

The little hints and tips along with the anecdotes from other dads help to bring to life how much of an important role a dad has to play in this wonderful and life changing process. Bring on August 14th ;) (5% chance it will happen right?!)

    I liked this quite a lot. I got it from the library for Ross and ended up finishing it in one setting. It may say something about my detachment that I found it easier to relate to a book for dads than one for mums. Poor child.

    A Dads perspective on what to expect throughout the months of pregnancy and how baby and Mum are progressing. It's given some reassurance and insight into the most wonderful and scary experience a new family can expect. With baby imminent we shall see whether it's helped!

    Must read for any body who has kids, planning to have kids or who wants a lot of laughs. I don't have kids, and no plans too have them. But I loved this book. It gives a brilliant perspective from a man's point of view. Must read for any body who has kids, planning to have kids or who wants a lot of laughs. I don't have kids, and no plans too have them.

    Brilliant. Whether your an expectant mum or an expecting dad, this is worth a read. Very informative without being over-bearing and, at points, laugh out loud funny.
