About the Author

Shawn Bean is executive editor of Parenting and Babytalk magazines, each with a circulation of over two million. That’s right: a guy editing magazines about babies. He is a pro football fanatic who also knows the best brand of binkies. He can hook up a DVD player and swaddle a newborn. Dad to Jackson, 6, and Tanner, 4, Bean has not only tackled serious topics like detecting autism in babies and toddlers, but he also pens "Pop Culture," a monthly humor column about dad’s place in modern society. Thanks to his fertility and parenting know-how, Bean has appeared on the Today show, ABC News, and CNN. He lives in Melbourne, Florida, where family time often means fielding questions about body parts, ninjas, monsters, and lava.

The book is very informative, yet presents all info in a funny, practical way.

While I pulled teeth to get my husband to read several other pregnancy books I had, this one he flipped through willingly and actually enjoyed!

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.

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.

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.

Got it for a friend and its perfect! Needed something that he would find interesting so he would read it. It has a lot of good info in a format that isn't too much like work.

I ordered this book for my husband just to see what helpful/useful tips it had in it. He enjoyed it! He doesn't enjoy reading so I thought this would be a funny, quick guide for him to refer to if he had questions with our first newborn.

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.
