Format: Paperback
This book covers everything from trying to conceive to entertaining a toddler through the use of witty, funny diagrams. It shows you the things you expect (diapering, feeding, sleep training, baby-proofing, etc.) as well as things you wouldn't (how to make up a fairy tale, how to entertain a child in a grocery line). The diagrams are well done and feature just enough humor to keep the book fun.

My husband doesn't love to read, so this book was a great find. It's funny, informative, has lots of illustrations and breaks down pregnancy and fatherhood into basics that are easily digestible. It is the one pregnancy book that my husband not only read, but also has referred back to several times. He liked the baby size comparisons to man-relatable items, rather than fruits, and the instructions on how to make blocks, build a mobile and other fun projects. He has actually brought the book to me to point out information about pregnancy more than once. This book seemed to make him feel more involved with our pregnancy and know what to expect without talking down to him.
This was a great purchase and I will probably make it my go-to gift for fathers-to-be from now on.

After reading many reviews about this I decided to get it for my husband despite the negative reviews that said it treated men like they were stupid. I read it as soon as it arrived and found it very entertaining. I've read dozens of baby books myself and really wanted to get my husband to read SOMETHING about babies. He loves to read, but only the books he's currently interested in. This book was something that he could thumb through at his leisure and even go back to as a reference later. It's great alternative to something like "What to Expect" for the busy guy.

I bought this along with some other rather hefty maternity/parenting books for myself. My husband was mock-offended that I bought myself thick books and he got a picture book. We were both pleasantly surprised at how this book makes being a dad look cool and doable. There are some great tips and I enjoy it myself. It's not really for kids, though, as it does show some sexual positions that promote fertilization and some of the silly cartoon images might be disturbing if taken out of context (by children or over-sensitive adults). This book makes a great gift for a first time Dad!

I bought this for my husband when I was pregnant because it seemed like a cute, tongue-in-cheek book and I thought it would be funny to get him a silly book when I had a ton of huge, serious pregnancy books. When it came, though, I was surprised to find that it contains actual useful information in an easy-to-digest format. My husband isn't a big reader, and this book presents information that is immediately obvious at a glance, with lots of handy tips and tricks. It is clever and funny, as I expected, and it's obviously not full of a ton of serious subject matter, but as a first-time dad with minimal baby experience, my husband did learn a few things reading it. He hasn't referred to it again, and I doubt he will, but I didn't think it would be useful for anything but a smile so I'm pleased.

My wife wanted kids for the longest time, but I felt like it was a responsibility beyond my capability. I was genuinely struck with fear. Then I met the author of this book at a farm in MD and within minutes I felt like being a dad might actually be pretty easy. Now I have three boys and owe all of my parenting skills to Mr. Bean. This book is the one and only resource that a new father will need to be the best dad in the neighborhood. Happy reading!

The book has a lot of great ideas and information on how and what to do. I'm a first time parent and it's handy to be able to just grab the book and flip to a page. Granted there is not a lot of writing just pictures, but it's great how they did it. It's not a serious book and it's very simple to understand.
