Format: Hardcover
I was actually put off this book after having read Stuff Every Mom Should Know and it starts out with talking about saving for college. My first thought was "what's up with the double standard here?" Moms need to know about feedings and diapers and Dads just need to know about setting up a college fund?

But I read on and that was actually a short section that I missed the point of. It was saying, "yeah you have to do this, but that's not your only role." The book, like other Stuff books, is full of little bits of useful information. It's not a complete manual, but it's a great first book. It breaks everything down so becoming a father doesn't seem quite so terrifying. I think that is its goal.

Brett goes from the new baby all the way to marrying them off. There's "How to Hold your Baby," "Five Tips for Caring for Your Wife or Partner," "How to Make a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich", "How to Encourage Outside Play", "How to Assign Chores", "Five Great Activities that Allow you to Bond with Your Teen." There are many, many more to choose from.

This book I would buy with Stuff Every Mom should know as a gift for expecting parents. Now Quirk just needs to write one for the single parent. Both books assume the other parent will be there helping out with the work.

Let me leave you with this joke from "Five Great Jokes to Make Your Child Giggle."

Q: Why is Cinderella bad at sports?

A: Because she has a pumpkin for a coach and she runs away from the ball.

I have this to my girlfriends husband who was "freaking" out about being a dad. He was dubious about it but found it helpful and enabled him to prepare himself a little more. It had information that you don't find out normally and just random things that are good to know

I get this book as a gift (paired with Stuff Every Mom Should Know) for all my friends who are expecting. I get amazing feedback from them all saying how creative and fun these books were to read. They are not just the usual what to expect type of books but include creative ideas, real world solutions, and a bit of humor to top it all off. Many couples also tell me that they started some great conversations that would have otherwise not have happened. They are also quite short so they are an easy read for busy parents-to-be and from what I hear these are great books to read when expecting a little one.

This book was a nice little quick read. I felt like almost all of the information in here was pretty obvious though. If you are completely clueless about having kids, then I could see there being a benefit. It's no replacement for some of the other parenting book options out there.
