I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy this book. I found the book very entertaining. I agree with other reviews that men need to be careful in letting their wives read it too. It's very irreverent towards pregnancy. I am unable to give it a full 5 stars because I was hoping for a book that was more educational. This is not the book to read if your looking for sincere knowledge. This is 100% for entertainment.

My wife and I are about to have our first kid, and we've done our fair share of research, but this book is definatly the one worth reading out of all of them. It really has two things going for it, humor and information.

The read is easy. It's almost flows as easily and humorously as the sunday comics page. Now, I know I definitely have the easy part of pregnancy being a man and all, but it is still pretty rough on both of us. This book brought that perspective to light for my wife and made it easier to convince me to do things for her.

Overall, I cannot recommend this book enough to expecting parents of both genders. But if you already know everything and have no sense of humor, you may not get anything out of it.

Definitely the best book I have read since our son was recently born. Okay I will be honest, it is the only book I have had time to read since our bundle of joy took over every minute of our days...and nights. But this is really the perfect book to get for any soon to be dad out there. Even if your child has already been born (like mine has), this book will have you laughing to the point of tears, thinking back to the bizarre behavior your wife exhibited during those 9 crazy months. You can definitely tell the authors have been through it all several times, and surprisingly have actually mixed in a lot of helpful information with their hilarious personal stories. I will without a doubt, read it again week by week next time we are pregnant, and will definitely be buying more copies for friends that are about to be first time dads, so that they too have a present to open while their wives are getting showered with gifts throughout their pregnancy.

Hopefully, these guys come out with a 2nd book: The Dude's Guide to the 1st Year of Fatherhood. Could definitely use it right about now.

I bought this and My Guys Can Swim for my Daddy-to-be thinking it would be cute to stick in a funny book with all the other serious books we planned to get through before baby arrived. Initially he seemed interested and even picked it up to read the same evening I gave it to him, but soon it ended up on the bookshelf with all the other discarded and/or previously read books. I later confronted him about the book, asking if he liked it or finished it. He confessed he felt it was stupid and not worth his time. Thankfully he was still interested in the serious books, so I didn't really care. I would suggest checking it out at your local library before purchasing.

I am now through my wife's first pregnancy.

Wow, it pains me to even think how much effort these authors put into trying to be funny. The lengths to which they went to try and get the reader to laugh would be admirable if the book was actually funny. That said, I did laugh out loud once, exactly half way into the book when I realized I was still reading it. I could save everyone some time and capture in four points what it took them 200 pages to do:
1. Kids are expensive
2. Women are highly irrational during pregnancy. So, don't try logic because they aren't thinking logically. Just swallow your pride and acquiesce way more often than normal.
3. Use "you look cute" a lot. It is easy for you to say and makes them feel way more secure about the way they look.
4. Sex is peaks and valleys during pregnancy. More valleys than peaks and the peaks are unpredictable, but there is no in between.

Don't waste your time or money on this one.

Hilarious! I loved it. It's filled with funny stories and great sarcasm. Anyone who's expecting will laugh with each page. Anyone who's been through it will appreciate these guys take on it. IT'S A PERFECT gift! I'm buying a few more copies to give at the next baby shower.The Dudes' Guide to Pregnancy: Dealing with Your Expecting Wife, Coming Baby, and the End of Life as You Knew It
