An information-packed guide to all the emotional, financial and physical changes the father-to-be may experience during the course of his partner's pregnancy. Incorporating the wisdom of top experts in the field, from obstetricians and birth-class instructors to psychologists and sociologists, this book is filled with sound advice and practical tips for men, as well as New Yorker-style cartoons that will keep anxious fathers-to-be chuckling.
From Library Journal
There is plenty of literature available for expectant mothers but significantly less for fathers-to-be. While both these titles address the overlooked father, their different approaches complement each other. Brott and Ash give practical advice on everything from where to have the birth?hospital or home?to how to start a college fund. How much does delivery by a midwife cost? What are the nutritional needs of the mother-to-be? Prenatal communication, sex during pregnancy, crib furnishings?one would be hard put to find a question about having a baby that is not dealt with here, all from the expectant father's point of view. In addition to practical problems, a man experiences profound, personal changes when he becomes a father. Heinowitz's goal is to help expectant fathers become the kind of engaged, involved fathers that they wish to be. In the process, he discusses coming to terms with one's own experience of childhood, accepting one's own feelings and emotions, dealing with the stress of parenthood, and even fathering through divorce. Both books will be very useful not only for expectant fathers but also for men wondering if fatherhood is right for them, and both are highly recommended for all public libraries and medical libraries serving obstetricians and their patients.?John Moryl, Yeshiva Univ.

What I did not like is that it is 99% text and considering I have the attention span of my soon-to-be new baby, I found it hard to read at times. That being said, you can read the whole book in a day or two and then reference back to it through the pregnancy since basically each chapter corresponds to a month of the pregnancy.
***Keep in mind this deals with just the pregnancy and you will need another book for how to change diapers and things like that. I recommend the Baby Instruction Manual. I love it.
All in all it was good and fulfilled my needs and I 100% would recommend this book.
I have seen Mr. Brott interviewed on television, and read about him in a number of places. He is becoming an expert in the area with a firm grasp of the issues facing a father of this generation.
This book is for a self-assured man, who realizes that with some thought put into it, being a father can be more fulfilling than the stereotypical distant father of previous generations.
For me, fatherhood is all that it is cracked up to be. Thank you for a book that provided a good heads up.
