Sedaka, maintains a refreshing sense of humor throughout the book [and] shows his sensitive side, too, such as in the chapter about how to support your wife after a failed IVF treatment. --The Washington Post
VOTED A 2011 BEST BOOK BY THE LIBRARY JOURNAL - "Sedaka's book is all about the raw basics of men dealing with infertility. His style combines enough casualness, humor, information, and medical advice to give a solid understanding of what's normal, when to worry, and what to expect." -Library Journal

I do however disagree with Marc on one thing though. He thinks that this book is written for guys. Indeed, I'm a guy and I loved it. But guess what, so did my WIFE! You know why? Marc was very much in touch with what we go through as men AS WELL as what the women go through in dealing with infertility and the effect it has on well almost everything in their lives. He was very sensitive to that and the love he has for his wife flowed through his every word.
As an MD who has delivered babies as a resident, I can tell you that every step of the fertility/infertility process can be complicated and difficult to understand. But thanks to his co-author, Dr. Gregory Rosen, all the technical and sometimes "gross" details of each step were broken down into terms any non-MD person can grasp and understand.
This book was empowering to my wife and I on our own personal journey through IVF and I am sure that anyone going through it would be thankful to read a book on the subject delivered with not only heartfelt candor but also with a good dose of needed humor which could only be appreciated by those of us going through the same thing that Marc and his wife went through.
Marc stated in the book that infertility can either bring a couple closer together or break them up. I totally agree. For me, it has brought my wife and I closer, and part of that had to do with reading this book and comparing our thoughts on what we read that day. And of course, her constantly giving me jazz because I am such a slow reader!! Sorry honey.
Thank you Marc and good luck with your hard earned family.
