Publisher's Description

Most dads look forward to d-day (delivery day) with a strange mix of excitement and dread. And it's no surprise since the birth of his first child is probably among the most nerve-stretching events a man will ever experience.

While dads-to-be are plagued by thousands of questions about entering the baby-fray, guys aren't likely to sit down with their fathers and friends to engage in "baby-talk." So where does a dad find a reliable source of information and preserve his "he-man" image?

This is the resource you're looking for. Set up in an easy-to-use A-to-Z format, this book is written by a veteran dad and his wife, a nurse who presents the medical insights afforded by her training, on matters that sometimes confuse men. Also included are features by several "seasoned dads"--such as Dr. James Dobson and Chuck Swindoll--who have experience in the trenches of fatherhood and now pass what they've learned along to readers.

    This book is an easy read, and I was done in a couple days. While it does have some good information, I think the layout is sort of lame, and it has a lot of basics. I'm sure that there are some dads to be out there that are COMPLETELY clueless, and maybe frustrated or upset about the whole situation. But coming from someone that is thrilled, and striving to be the best husband/father/man I can, it was a little redundant. Especially the parts about "if you want to harm your baby, call someone immediately and get help!" This must be in there at least 4 times, and is a pretty obvious thing! Seriously I give it a B- as it's informative though.
