5.0 out of 5 stars You'd have never guessed, August 27, 2002
This review is from: The Expectant Father: Facts, Tips and Advice for Dads-to-Be, Second Edition (Paperback)
The best part about this book is that its all about daddy...the pregnancy books will tell you all about what's going on with the woman and the baby, but this book is all about dad. It does a really great job of telling dads-to-be how to cope with the inevitable symptoms of wanting to be a great dad....all without upsetting your partner (or not more than normally anyway) :)
There are important tidbits all over the book about prejudices against dads who take some of the traditional mommy roles in raising their children. There is one part where Mr. Brott describes some other mother as saying "You're babysitting the kids today?" to which he responded "No, I am taking care of my children". Society, including both men and women, devalue the father's role in child-rearing, and this book does an excellent job in discussing it.
Of course, if you read the other reviews, you see that it certainly covers a WIDE variety of topics, and covers them all well. I highly recommend this book for any dad-to-be, no matter how much they think they know. Great Book
