Format: Paperback
The other reviewers (especially the first one) may have missed the point a little. This book is specifically written FOR DADS and (to be politically correct) "life-partners." It's NOT designed to be a "book for expectant mothers, but which dads-to-be might also enjoy." If there is a dad-to-be in the relationship who actually cares about the mother & child, HE should be the one reading this book. It's a great resource for helping us guys understand what's going on, as well as how to treat our wives/partners like queens. It doesn't pretend to tell us how to completely understand women; that's impossible, especially during pregnancy. It does, however, give advice on how to deal with things in a healthy, positive way.
I appreciate that there's a book like this that explains everything in layman's terms, but with enough depth to keep from insulting my intelligence. I didn't find it condescending at all. In fact, being a first-time dad-to-be, there were many aspects of the pregnancy that I was clueless about. And paternalistic? In my view, since the book was written for men, that's a good thing.

The reader who submitted the last review obviously did not read the book or its title. This book is called "How to Make a Pregnant Woman Happy" - it's written for the mom AND the dad. I used the first edition of this book throughout my first pregnancy and regard it as a bible. There were so many times when I had a first-time-around mom question - and felt uncomfortable about calling my doc over every little thing - this book put my fears to rest by telling me - and my husband - what to do and when to call without sounding like a nag to my OB. Yes, this book is written so that dads feel like part of the process - and thank goodness! My husband wanted to help and didn't always know how. Having a quick reference guide written with both of us in mind was really helpful. Moreover, the book includes natural remedies that I couldn't find in other books - from an MD - which was nice because as a first timer, I was worried about everything, including medications during pregnancy. I have so many notes in it and so many pages are dog-eared that I refuse to lend it out. I can't imagine what the last reviewer was thinking - except that maybe it competes with a book s/he or a friend wrote!

My husband and I both agree that this book is the best one we've ever seen. This is our second pregnancy, and I picked up the book actually thinking of my brother & sis-in-law who are expecting their 1st. After flipping through it only a little, I bought a second copy for us, since the information is so thorough and accessible.
I particularly appreciate all the information the author provides about specific tests - he points out and explains things that we non-medical people wouldn't otherwise know. For instance, if a pregnant woman is feeling particularly fatigued (and shows other symptoms as well, which he describes,) you can ask your doctor to test for thyroid conditions - but he explains that you should ask for a specific type of test, as the most common test tends to be inaccurate.
I also REALLY like his diet guidelines for fending off gestational diabetes! If you've ever felt sluggish after eating, suffered wheat or gluten allergies or had a G.D. scare you know that what you eat can DRASTICALLY affect the way you feel - and the guidelines provided in this book, even if followed loosely, will keep you healthier and improve your energy considerably.
I could go on and on about how highly I regard this book; it's not a "pregnancy guide book" like the "What to Expect..." book, but more of a "quick reference manual," if you will. I have found the information to be superior.

Some of the reviewers seem to be missing the point: This is a book to empower the Dad's to feel involved in their impending fatherhood. As soon as you, as a couple, get a positive on that little pee stick, it becomes all about the woman. Dad's often feel like helpless bystanders while mom gets tired, sick, swollen and all the rest. They can't share the burden of growing a child. This book does not assume the woman is "sitting around waiting for advice", but that she may have other things distracting her, like say, constant nausea, and that Dad may want a resource to help him step in and give her a hand. This book is fabulous for putting accessible advice in the hands of the fathers. Believe me, Mom is reading everything under the sun about her own pregnancy, but isn't it nice when Dad can retain some of that info too and share some of the knowledge???? How can that be a bad thing? It's not condescending! It's wonderful! How many of your grandfathers had books about pregnancy directed at THEM? Dad's today want to help out and this book helps them do so. We found it insightful and straight-forward. Loved it.

The person I bought it for seems to have found it very helpful. She was able to find in it quite a few natural cures for pregnant problems, including nausea.

Great book for fathers. I am highlighting the main points for father's to be, as most of them don't want to sit down and read every line.
