From Publishers Weekly
In an expanded and updated version of Brott's 1995 book, the authors once again present a month-by-month guide to pregnancy for the father-to-be. Illustrated throughout with humorous cartoons, the book divides each month of pregnancy into four astute categories: "What She's Going Through" (physical and emotion changes), "What's Going On with the Baby" (physical progress), "What You're Going Through" (physical and emotional changes) and "Staying Involved" (tips on supporting and encouraging the pregnant partner). Since most child-rearing books for men focus primarily on the emotional challenges, it's both refreshing and helpful that these authors include practical advice: recipes, detailed insights into the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 and realistic appraisals of the often very high costs of baby furnishings. Most valuable are the sections on the aspects of birth that make many men squeamish (episiotomies, epidurals and cesarean sections) as well as the post-delivery traumas that they tend to avoid facing (finding childcare, dealing with late-night wake-ups, dressing young children and sex after pregnancy). This is an essential book for all expectant fathers. (June)Forecast: Brott, a father of two, who has been called "the superdad's superdad" by Time magazine, has written five books on fatherhood and hosts Positive Parenting, a national radio talk show. Considering the increasing number of fathers who want to be actively involved in parenting, this book, with its Father's Day release, should do at least as well as the original, which was a bestseller.

My husband gave up a little over halfway through just because he didn't feel like it matched his experience at all and really annoyed him. I read a little more of it just for a perspective not written to the mother, and was similarly unimpressed.
Recipes are seemingly just a filler within the book when you can literally find any recipe on the Internet to satisfy the most ambitious or common craving. The author also goes on some personal rants he feels passionate about towards the end of the book which caused my interest to drop. His scenario as a father could be described as somewhat atypical which triggers some of his passionate rants. However, most readers aren't going to connect with strong feelings regarding the perception of men as parents in today's society.
Worth the read if you are looking for a book to prep you for the big day.
