Can be mildly amusing at times, but mostly I'd prefer to have a lot more advice and information. ( )

This book is a great gift for any first-time father. It contains excellent advice such as to drink double to make up for your wife's inability to drink and favorite toys for a man to bring to the hospital. The format follows the [What to Expect When You're Expecting] series with each chapter covering one month of the pregnancy. Rather than detailing "What you may be feeling" as per the REAL What to Expect Book, each chapter begins with, "What your wife will be complaining about" and each month the first item is always "You."

This is a humorous look at life as a husband with a pregnant wife. There may be a few bits of useful information in here by mistake, but it's mostly supposed to provide some much-needed silliness during what can be a somewhat stressful (although fun and exciting) time. ( )

Complete with weird baby names, tips on how to avoid a sympathetic pregnancy, and a discourse on the evolution of ESPN and the role it plays postdelivery, Hill's tome has been thoroughly revised to account for not only the usual father-to-be questions but also the often baffling and amusing technological and medical advances awaiting today's four million expectant dads. This hilarious month-by-month guide offers new and veteran dads solace, laughter, and a bit of useful information, including a question-and-answer chapter covering basics like "How much does having a baby cost?"; visual charts assessing such things as the breakdown behind the mom-to-be's weight gain; sidebars covering common wife complaints and anticipated purchases; and much more.… (more)
