Additionally, the following passage from page thirty-four almost led me to stop reading entirely:
"In most cases, miscarriages--most of which happen within the first three months of pregnancy--are a blessing in disguise, the body's way of eliminating a fetus or embryo that would be better off not surviving. If your partner has a miscarriage, neither of you is likely to find that particularly reassuring. But remember that over 90 percent of couples who experience a single miscarriage are able to conceive again and have a healthy baby later."
Both of those statments are insulting and misleading.
In general, the book is enjoyable to read but it has one shortcoming in my opinion.
As a father of a one year old boy, I thoroughly enjoyed the pertinent chapters and could relate to what I read. The other chapters (puberty, teens, leaving home.....) were not very interesting, for me at least.
I now think that if you want to read about being a father, you should look for a book dedicated to fathers with kids the age of yours. In other words, the book is way too ambitious.
It has to be very difficult to describe what it is to be a father, of children of absolutely any age, and have people relate to the reading.
The book makes a few good points about kids the same age as mine and I enjoyed it, but it tries to summarize too much in just a few pages.
Still, an OK book.
