Now that our beautiful baby has arrived, I can reflect on how well this book prepared me. For me and our situation, I can say that this book had everything I really needed to know. I'd wholeheartedly recommend it to any expecting father. Read it all the way through ASAP, just to get the big picture, end-to-end. Then revisit each monthly chapter as the months approach.
After that, invest your time in learning about actually being a dad!
As a bonus, what I really appreciated about this book was how up-to-date it is, its inclusiveness of diverse situations (e.g. IVF and active duty expectant fathers), and its progressiveness.
In summary, if you're about to be a father and feel like you have no idea what to do or what to expect, this is a good book for you. If you're about to be a father and you're just in the mood for some specific tips or pointers, this book might be a little too broad for you.
This book's only real flaw is that it tries to cover every possible father's bases - whether you're adopting, expecting multiples, using a surrogate, etc, and that's not really much of a flaw. Getting around the contingencies that don't apply to you will be a bit tiring, at times, but there's very little info for fathers that this book leaves out.
That said, this is just info for dads -- mommies to be will find little between these covers that concerns them that isn't already explained better in books written specifically for men.
As for contents, it talks about what the expecting mother is going through, how he should help, and how to deal with things he might going through.
