I did't need to be reaffirmed of my "dudeness," I just wanted to read up on some tips to be the best dad I can be. The content may have been there, but I couldn't get past the cartoon of a tone of the writer.
If you're a dude freaking out over being a dad, this could be a good book for you.
If you're a man who wants to get some facts a dad-to-be should know without cutesy quips, check out "The Expectant Father: Facts, Tips, and Advice for Dads-to-Be"
However, it is quite encouraging to see the extent to which men are embracing fatherhood and are becoming so active in the entire process. The more books on the topic the better and this book does fill a need and does so with humor. Some of the advice like how to prepare formula on page 61, however, is pretty standard fare though and the book is limited in only dealing with the period of birth through the first three months.
I personally found the newer book The Dysfunctional Father's Guide to Pregnancy Birth and Babies to be much more amusing and realistic. It deals with the period from planning to get pregnant to the first birthday. I loved the illustrations
The author's attempt at military humor, while recognized, doesn't improve the book. Some of the abbreviations used throughout the text (NFU, FFP, Etc.) make it a more confusing read. I appreciate a real dad sharing his take on things, but I think the topic might be better served with a more organized approach.
