Editorial Reviews

Review

Sedaka, maintains a refreshing sense of humor throughout the book [and] shows his sensitive side, too, such as in the chapter about how to support your wife after a failed IVF treatment. --The Washington Post

VOTED A 2011 BEST BOOK BY THE LIBRARY JOURNAL - "Sedaka's book is all about the raw basics of men dealing with infertility. His style combines enough casualness, humor, information, and medical advice to give a solid understanding of what's normal, when to worry, and what to expect." -Library Journal

I feel like reading these books helped up both continue our communication through this exhausting process.

This book helped him understand why all of that, while well intentioned, was not helpful.

My wife and I have been dealing with infertility on and off for about three years now. With my wife now on the bandwagon again, I decided to get this book and see if it could offer me the male perspective I've been lacking. I'm happy to say it did and then some! The first few chapters were mostly about when to start trying, when to see a doctor, etc., so that wasn't really for me (though if you are just confronting infertility, I highly recommend these chapters -- also the one's that break down all the testing in "guy-speak".) Where the book really shined, for me at least, was in all the advice the author gives about how to cope with your wife while she's going through all this stuff. It's clear he experienced everything first hand, and it almost felt like a friend telling me what I should and shouldn't do. I've got to say that I've been looking for a book like this for a long time. I highly recommend it.

My husband hated this book. Felt bad for getting it for him as I had to explain it in no way reflected how I viewed him. He said it was not helpful and he found it to be written by a sexist douche bag. He couldn't imagine that the guy who wrote this actually cared about his wife.

Can't believe other men actually found this helpful. This guy is just god-awful I actually feel bad for his wife being stuck with an insensitive jerk during this painful process. I do not share this guys view on women or infertility. If you are a loving husband steer clear of this book. If you are a stereotypical macho jerk-off, its all yours!

Author provided understandable information on infertility and a variety of treatment options. Author offered some expected costs of the various treatments. Doctor co-author was very helpful when explaining the more technical side of the treatments and some of the side effects.

This was a good read. There were a few inaccurate pieces in the book, but other than that it was a candid description of a mans journey through TTC.

Format: Paperback
As a man in the midst of the infertility maelstrom, negotiating what is many couples' first major crisis together, I was looking for something that would offer a thoughtful (dare I say, sensitive?) insight into what is a deeply unsettling, saddening time. What I got was a book that seems aimed at what I thought was only a stereotype of the American male: the one that would probably have called me any number of idiotic names for having used the words "thoughtful" and "sensitive" in the same sentence as "infertility". This book is horrifically bad, from it's "universal truths" that all "fertility-challenged" women (what a great way to stigmatize one's beloved) "hate kids" to the guide to "Wife Psycho Levels" to the "Ten things not to say to your fertility-challenged wife" (including "So, if your sister carries it, does that mean I can still sleep with her?"), the whole thing reads more like an article on the degeneration of the American man-child from The Onion than a fertility-related resource. It may be a funny read, but not in the way you might have expected.
