A great perspective on what it's like to be a dad-to-be. Humorous and relatable

I have to admit, I approached reading Christian Piatt’s “Pregmancy: A Dad, a Little Dude, and a Due Date” with mixed feelings. On the one hand, I wanted to read it because Christian wrote it. I read his Banned Questions about the Bible, which was very good, but because it contained the work of a variety of scholars, there was not as much writing that was originally his. What I thought was lacking in the one, though, was made up for in spades by the other. I definitely learned a lot about him by ...more

Has there ever been another humorous take on fatherhood, that acknowledged the stress involved because the father is doing his job? If there is, I'm sure there aren't many. Christian Piatt walks the reader through the experience, one trimester at a time, and shows that while no parent is perfect, also is not parent truly alone in their experience. His blunt course language and gloriously disgusting stories lend an honest atmosphere. This is not an advice book, but a collection of laugh-and-wince ...more

This book is laugh-out-loud funny, grab-a-tissue touching, and make-you-think deep, sometimes by turns, and sometimes all at the same time. It’s open and honest and sometimes so candid you’ll want to say Oh, TMI! But you won’t, because you’ll want to keep reading. And ladies, there are moments of sweet revenge like the chapter about Christian’s vasectomy. It will feel like a settling of the score for the indignities you’ve suffered on the OB/GYN table.

Great book. As a father of a boy toddler that is also expecting a baby girl, I was really able to identify with a lot of what Piatt was saying. I really appreciated his honesty with his anxieties of becoming a father again, raising a boy, his past, his relationship with his wife, etc. Would highly recommend it to fathers and fathers-to-be.

I felt the writing was mediocre, but still funny and poignant enough to entertain. The last section on the vasectomy was interesting. :D Hey, this is why we read books, right? To learn about things we could never experience for ourselves?

I once heard a surgeon tell an author that he had always wanted to write a novel.

"That's funny," said the author, "I've always wanted to perform brain surgery."

Writing as a hobby is one thing; writing as a passionate obsession is entirely another; writing professionally is equal parts megalomania and masochism.

I started out writing arts reviews for a local paper, moving on to features and a few o
