Editorial Reviews

Review

"Becoming a new father can be terrifying, but Dad to Dad will make the journey seem not only manageable but actually kind of fun. . . . I wish I'd read this book before my children were born, more importantly, so do my wife and kids."  —Dan Tynan, contributing editor, Family Circle


"Dr. Hill's book is the perfect combination of expert pediatric advice mixed with the humbling uncertainty every new parent feels--regardless of whether or not they have an M and a D after their name. Moms: Sneak this onto your husband's nightstand!" —Missy Lapine, author, The Sneaky Chef


"A practical, no-nonsense kind of book for any current father or a soon to be dad...I wish that this book would have been out when I was a first time dad."  —Dad of Divas Review blog 


"Hill, a pediatrician and a father, has presented his amiable take on fatherhood, which has consistently offered a winning combination of humor and fact, in various segments on National Public Radio. This highly entertaining and informative book presents Hill at his best, but its wide range—from before birth to the toddler years—makes this volume for fathers an essential addition to such parenting books as What to Expect When You Are Expecting." —www.publishersweekly.com


"This book comes highly recommended."  —The Rookie Dad 

"Hill's excellent advice...puts this work at the top of the heap of essential parenting books."  —Publishers Weekly 

"I believe a society gradually moving toward full acknowledgement of fatherhood needs this book. Dads need to know what to expect just as moms do, but they also need to be addressed as dads."  —A Blogger and a Father blog

By Dad of Divas TOP 500 REVIEWER on May 25, 2012
Format: Paperback
This was a practical, no-nonsense kind of book for any current father or a soon to be dad. I love the fact that the book covers so many areas that a father typically will have to cover. The author does this with a style that is engaging, and one that helps the reader to easily understand what he can do to change and better the situation. One of the things I liked best were the sections entitled "what You Can Do" as these were very practical pieces of advice and things to think about in relation to the topic being discussed. Even more, the layout of the book is conducive to learning and I know that for me at least, I wish that this book would have been out when I was a first time dad, and I plan to pass this book along to other dads as I believe that they will be able to learn from this too.

It is actually a pretty good book. But the problem is that I already read about parenting so much on the internet (just baby center and mayo clinic type stuff) that I found very few new things.

If you are absolutely new to parenting and if this is the first time you are reading about parenting, pick up this book. Think of it as compilation of good stuff from all over the internet. But also remember that all that stuff is only a Google search away.

I agree with a lot of the other comments; if you are a first-time dad like I am, this book is a great resource. I read it before the baby arrived and it helped me to feel confident about my parenting once he was actually here. It's well organized and I see it getting pulled off the shelf and used as a reference a lot. The author clearly knows his stuff and I'm probably more inclined to start with the answers in this book than trust the billion hits on a search engine.

Great book for any new dad. It does not go very deep because it covers a broad age range so I'd still recommend other books for a deep-dive on the first year.

Well written and funny. My husband loved it and found useful tips for our son. I've given it to a friend's husband as a gift as well. Great book.
