It's a funny book with some actual information. Luckily, it doesn't stray too far into "dude, you're having a kid", but isn't in-depth in a lot of subjects. If you want to read in-depth, suck it up and read the books your partner is reading like the Mayo clinic series or something similar. This was the first book I read on the subject, and it's a good way to ease into it.

Parenting books aimed at fathers are always a better read than those aimed at mothers. All the same useful information, but with a humorous take.
