A sigh of relief for the expectant father.............
Pregnancy books generally cater for Mums, but what about the Dads-to-be?!
The thought of reading one of those 'What to expect when you're expecting' books just didn't do it for me. Smith's guide is informative, witty and UNIQUE. What this book does is take a light hearted yet informative look at the subject from a man's perspective and let's face it - it's a rollercoaster ride for us too! Reading about experiences other 'men' have gone through has been a real help to me as well as been hilarious at times. This is a big sigh of relief for any Dad-to-be; I'll be buying a copy for any of my mates who get that 'life changing' news from now on!
They Deserve to Know ALL the Detail!
Although quite graphic in parts, it's important that he knows what's coming, especialy for first time fathers. My husband had said he wasn't going to be at the birth as he didn't like 'all that stuff', when I told him that if he wasn't at the birth he wouldn't be at the conception he had a rethink!! Upon reading this he started to feel really excited, frightened, enthusiastic and all the other emotions that come with planning a family. It really helped to see that there were things that he would be in control of and would be resposible for and even if you don't like 'all that stuff' you don't have to see it. It's packed full of useful information as well as frequent jokes, sarcasm and wit to entertain and keep them reading. My husband had said that it answered all the questions he was too embarrassed to ask, feeling that he should know all then answers. Whether first timers or tenth timers I don't think anyone has all the answers so this book realy does help. Women will find themselves chuckling through it too, if they can get it of their partners. A good one for the ladies is 'The Rough Guide to Pregnancy' - Kaz Cooke, informative, not quite a Bible but hilarious!
A good book with a bit too much detail
I bought this book for my husband and he got right through it (with a bit of nagging) which is unusual for him. He said it helped to know that he wasn't alone, and other blokes feel the same way. He did feel there was too much detail (as did I, having read it too)which turned him off a bit, but he was glad he read it. It's a good book to get the father-to-be through those first nine months. The only other book he read (and which actually made him laugh)was Babies for Beginners by Roni Jay, which prepared him for the next stage of coping with the new baby and which he said could have been written for dads as much as mums.
