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.
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.
