Review

"The Chicago author has made a career out of advising teens on growing up. Here he focuses on parenthood. Promising to educate men on pregnancy, this book is stocked with tips and Q&As, perfect to read between administering foot rubs and cooing supportive words." - Chicago Tribune

""I enjoyed this book because I knew when my wife felt pains or had other symptoms conducive to pregnancy, I knew not to overreact. I could assure her that she and the baby was more than likely doing fine, and the little things cropping up were all normal. The book also showed and explained what changes the baby was going through, and its amazing development inside her belly. Knowing what to expect, along with going to her doctor appointments, has really put me at ease since all signs point to a healthy baby."" - The Fruit of His Labor

""Many a times when I read this book, I would burst out in giggles as the author is witty and hilarious while not losing sight of factual information. Dad's Pregnant Too! is so much FUN to read and I wish we had it eight years ago when I was first pregnant. It's definitely THE essential guide, packed with the best advice for expectant couples from the experts and parents who have been there before."" - Mom To BB Reviews

"Cohen explains how life changes during pregnancy and after the baby is born, and how to be a valuable and helpful member of the child-making/raising team. And it's funny and well written." - Raising Arizona Kids

"I now firmly believe that every positive pregnancy test and Soon-to-be-a-Father's Day card should include a copy of Dad's Pregnant, Too! It's the only way a woman can get the sympathy she deserves before her ankles start to swell." - Cool Mom Picks

"Cohen has left nothing out, his sense of humour throughout will be appreciated by all who read this marvelous book. Dads-to-be should be lining up to get their hands on a copy of, Dad's Pregnant Too!
" - Imagination-Cafe

"For any new father who truly wants to be a good father and husband, this is the book for him. It's easy to read, easy to relate to, and most of all it's honest and funny." - Help 4 New Moms

"Cohen's book will touch you with it's raw honesty and make you laugh with its good humor." - Chicago Parent.com

" Dad's Pregnant Too is a great alternative to the other expectancy books out there because your man will actually pick this one up! " - Peekaboo Picks

"Since emotions can be heightened during pregnancy, Cohen felt it was important to offer practical advice on what men should (and shouldn't) do to help out. He also wanted to assist other men with the feelings they might experience during pregnancy but are unable to deal with due to the focus rightly being placed on the mother-to-be and baby." - Tonawanda News

I received a copy of dad's pregnant too a few days ago to give to my niece and her husband who are expecting their first child. I flipped through the book (excellent index) and was amused and amazed by the wealth of useful, informative and entertaining information. I have ordered three more books for colleagues - it's the perfect non-traditional pregnancy gift.

I loved this book. I got this great book as a gift and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was really funny and informative. My husband who usually doesn't have the patience to sit down and read actually read whole chapters at a time. A friend of mine was over and started reading it since it was sitting on our coffee table and liked it so much that I gave it to her and I am buying myself another one.

I purchased this book for my husband during our first pregnancy, and he absolutely hated it. According to him, the book's many stories and anecdotes essentially state that a pregnant woman is an emotionally abusive wreck, so beware! The book is not really an advice book for dads-to-be as much as it is simply a journal of the author's experience of his wife's pregnancy. Unless you have a lifestyle and career similar to his, you won't find this book useful.

When I first purchased this book there weren't any reviews on Amazon, yet. Then later, after some critical reviews, I find that the author's own wife has posted a review. I find that highly suspect. Should author's themselves be allowed to review their work? The wife's opinions on her husbands work belong in a prologue of the book, not as a true review of the material on this site.

If you are looking for an advice book for the father-to-be, there are many better, more informative books out there. Don't waste your money, or time, on this one.

I bought this book along with many other new daddy books when my wife was first pregnant. In a nutshell, the book seems like a cut and paste of other peoples' blogs put together in a pretty book format. Every five pages the author asks for your contribution to his next book by directing you to his website (skip it) it was annoying. All the info in the book is easily found on the internet for free. This book could have been a collection of hyperlinks. Dad's Pregnant too left me disappointed. Check out Be Prepared: A Practical Handbook for New Dads, it's funny and is a great companion to What to expect (which your baby mama is already reading).

My husband loved this book. It is both funny and informative. He bought multiple other books as well but he felt this was the most helpful book for him. He has even bought it as a gift for his buddies as well. Highly recommended.

Easy to pick up and read whenever new Dad needs advice. A neighbor recommended this book for my husband when I was 5 months pregnant and he enjoyed reading it. The tips and advice are not just from the author but articles from ordinary men preparing to become fathers and learning to love their wives during hormonal changes, aches, pains, and weird food cravings or aversions. Recommend to first time dads looking for some advice on being supportive of their pregnant woman.

If only you can get the guy to really read this, it'd be 100% perfect. I read different parts of it and it's totally good for your significant other to read to understand what you are going through while pregnant or expecting a child. They have no idea all the emotions, hormones, etc that effect the way you think or act! READ IT MEN!

Dad to be is not much on reading for fun but really enjoyed this book. It was written so he was frequently chuckling while reading it and seems to have gotten lots of information on what I'm going through. Highly recommend to new dads.
