A month or so ago, I received a book in the mail to review. Since I wasn't Pregnant, or planning on becoming pregnant, I wondered how much I would have to add to this book to give it a review of any sort. However, I'm a trooper and when I opened the book, the time flew. I have to say that I was surprised by how into this book I really was. As somewho who, when she was pregnant, read what felt like every freaking parenting book out there, I was impressed by this little tome of information. Let's start with the obvious: this isn't a large book. It's not a step-by-step "how to be dad" book. It's not going to give you the blow-by-blow details of parenthood that "What to Expect" would give you, nor will it scare you half to death like that book will. What it will do is give you a laid back view of fatherhood written by a man who has been a single dad for a long time. At times, the book has a crunchy, granola-like feel, but overall, the information felt sound. Some of the most important advice in the book is simple: You are not your parents and you aren't anyone else. Do your best.The book hits on important topics such as how to hold a baby all the way through how to talk to your kids about important things. There are aspects of parenthood such as the "how to"s and the things you never consider when you are starting as a parent such as the inevitable poop in the bathtub. Yep. Been there, done that.Overall, I'd say this is a good book for a new dad or for a new stepdad. It is a book to give to a dad who needs to not be overwhelmed with what is happening or about to happen. If you are a dad who is anal or who likes a lot of lists or being told what to do, this book isn't for you. But if you just need a primer and a little encouragment, I highly recommend, "Pregnant: A Field Guide to Fathering". ( )
