Overview

Every day, four thousand American men become first-time dads. There are literally hundreds of pregnancy guidebooks aimed at women, but guys rarely rate more than a footnote. A Guy's Guide to Pregnancy is the first book to explain in "guy terms" the changes that happen to a guy's partner and their relationship during pregnancy, using a humorous yet insightful approach.

Future fathers will find out what to expect when they enter the "Pregnancy Zone." They'll discover the right and wrong answers to Trick Questions like "Do I look fat?" They'll also learn baby-shower etiquette ("It's sooo cute!"), the truth about sex during pregnancy (yes, you can touch her) and Boys' Night Out (negotiate it), plus delivery room dos (stay upright) and don'ts (complain about missing the big game).

A Guy's Guide to Pregnancy is designed to be guy-friendly -- approachable in appearance as well as content and length. It is divided into forty brisk chapters, one for each week of the pregnancy.

Frank Mungeam is the executive producer of local programs at the ABC-TV affiliate in Portland, Oregon, supervising the Emmy-nominated daily live talk show AM Northwest and the series Parenting in the 90's. Mungeam combines his years of expertise as a communicator and his personal experiences as an expectant dad to create a humorous yet helpful guide for guys.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A pregnancy book men will love reading...Filled with answers to a guy's questions, this is a must-read for both men and women who want a joyous, full-participation pregnancy. You'll discover that Frank Mungeam is quite a gifted guy!"

— Harold Bloomfield, Ph.D., author of Making Peace with Your Parents

"Reading this book is the best present a man can give his partner. Well, diamonds might be the best present, but reading this book is a close second!"

— Dr. Elliot Weiner, author and host of the radio program Sound Advice

"This book can make a world of difference in communication and sensitivity to your partner's needs and help your relationship."

— John Gray, Ph.D.

From Barnes & Noble
Sure, there are plenty of book on pregnancy out there, but how about about specific advice for first-time dads? This helpful book explains, in "guy" terms, the changes that happen to the expectant mom and the relationship between partners. Using a humorous yet insightful and informative approach, the book guides future fathers through such dilemmas as the right and wrong answers to such questions as "Do I look fat?" and "Do you still find me attractive?" and much more. Find out how to help your mate in ways she'll really appreciate, how to deal with sex before and after delivery, how to get through birthing classes and the delivery itself, and a myriad of other aspects of being a first-time dad. Lots of helpful advice for both partners. "A Guy's Guide to Pregnancy is about more than handing out cigars and using your new video camera. It helps every guy understand the changes that are coming.. -- John Gray, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are From Venus."
