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

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.

I can't imagine a clearer, more down-to-earth book. Told in an incredibly natural style, almost conversational, this book will calm the nerves (and enlighten the thinking) of any husband going through this trial. And, more importantly, help them do the right things with their spouse in relation to all of the obstacles and minefields along the way.

I don't know why another reviewer was surprised that this book is about *female* infertility. It couldn't be clearer from the title and description. I don't write many Amazon reviews, but I had to say how much I liked it and what a big help it will be in understanding what a wife would be going through. I recommend it to any guy who's wife is at a "Psycho Level 7" or above. (Buy the book and you'll know what I'm talking about.)

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.

Obviously a book is good for some and not good for others. I appreciate the views some reviews expressed about the book not being right from them but I do not agree with them. I think if at the very least you accept the book as one man's experience and draw from it what you want then you will come out a much more supportive and stronger partner in this process. If, like me, you are a well intentioned but occasionally less aware partner, this book can be immensely helpful. My wife and struggled with fertility for about two years and experienced one miscarriage. We then began the process of IUI and IVF which I was completely oblivious to. The book helped me understand what was coming and ways I could be helpful during the meetings with the doctor. More importantly though the book helped me process what I was experiencing as a man and begin to understand what my wife was going. One thing he says, which you may not agree with, so be it, is "You may want a child, but your wife needs a child." This perspective helped me understand a bit more about why my wife was willing to put her body through so much to try to have a child. I wanted to throw in the towel and be the really cool Aunt and Uncle that travel all over the world but having a kid was an innate need she needed to try to fill. I also really appreciate his recurring line about your resolve being strong enough. All of this is to say that I 100% recommend reading this book.

This book was very helpful. If you're looking for a practical, realistic book from someone who has gone through the infertility nightmare then this is absolutely worth your attention. It was a quick and easy read, and the author's humor is peppered into the book to keep the mood light. It helps to keep an otherwise painful and serious topic light and easy to approach. I can't speak for everyone, but I don't tend to pick up scientific journals for pleasure reading at the end of a rough day. This book was written in a way that made me want to continue to read it, which made my wife happy because it made it clear that I was taking a vested interest in our situation. If you tend to be someone who needs a more sensitivity (which is totally fine), then this is probably not the book for you. If you tend to see the humor in things, and try to make light of difficult situations then it's absolutely worth the relatively quick read.

My friend and I discovered this gem in our doctors waiting room and bought it for our husbands. It's an easy read that breaks down the medical jargon, it's relatable and with a sense of humour (something we appreciated when most places we turned to for advice and guidance were overwhelming and often left us feeling more frustrated). We also love how Marc helped our guys understand what the process is really like for women.

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.
