I got this book when I was expecting my baby because I thought all the pregnant books were very traditional-mother focused and all the others 'you're gonna be a dad books' seemed laddish at best. This book is OK in the non-laddish sense, but it still feels patronising both towards the reader and towards the mother. Some of the advice given is OK but most of it is repetitive and you can probably find it in another book for mothers, anyway. The book could be shortened to 20 pages, in that respect. ...more

The good: Useful. Easy to read. Clear messages. Not patronising.

The bad: Sometimes the book mentions an important topic, but then just says 'look it up in another book' or 'do research online' - or the author could just take a couple of pages to tell me?

I thought the bit about the process of going into labour, and steps involved and what happens, was confusing. To me, it made it seem unnecessarily complicated.

Good tips

First baby book I’ve read and was surprised how much I actually knew! Having said that, the book has great little tips for new dads and is quite an easy read, explaining in simplistic terms the majority of things you need to know.

I was dead set against reading any books in the run up to becoming a Dad, mostly because a lot of pregnancy and childcare literature seems to be based on opinion rather than fact. My partner bought me this book though and in all honesty it's been a huge help. A real emphasis is put on deciding what's right for your family which means it's a lot easier to read and soak up. If you're looking for tips and ideas when you're about to become a Dad then you could do a lot worse than having a look at ...more
