Overview

Each year millions of fathers are "born"—many kicking, screaming, and railing against the prospect of raising the next generation. Not to worry: Veteran author (and Super Dad!) Scott Kelby turns parenthood into a pleasant prospect by focusing on all that you get from being a dad rather than what you think you're about to give up. Even the most resistant will soon see that the scale is tipped heavily in dads' favor as Scott reveals the rewards of fatherhood. Filled with the same self-deprecating humor and no-nonsense writing style that have made Scott the number one computer book author of 2004 across all computer book categories, this book promises to transform your loved one from a fearful father into parenting's biggest fan. In direct, guy-to-guy language, Scott walks you through the process of accepting and eventually welcoming offspring. With chapters such as Making the Baby Your Own (by attending prenatal appointments, taking Lamaze classes, etc.), Dealing with Dirty Diaper Syndrome, Looking Past the Baby Stage, and more, Scott demystifies—and glorifies—every aspect of fatherhood.

    Great book for dads and non-dads.

    I have always been a big fan of Scott kelby's Photoshop books and discovered that he had written this book about the fear of fatherhood. Being a dad myself, my children are truly the best additions to my life, I was curious what Scott had to say. Scott Kelby does a wonderful job of explaining the joy and pride of being a father in a humorous, conversation style easy read. I love this book and getting it for Christmas for all my married, non-dad, male friends.

    Pregnant with mediocrity

    While the title of this book seemed compelling enough, there was really nothing inside that I hadn't already heard dozens of times from zealous parents. The basic intent of the book, obviously, is to convince reluctant fathers of the consummate value of starting a family. However, while no sane person would dispute the inherent rewards of parenting, the points the author presents simply aren¿t sophisticated enough to take seriously. It also trivializes the issue in a lot of ways (e.g., referring to kids as the best ¿gadgets¿ one could ever have). I found it on the whole to be a tired commentary on the subject, with a pedestrian attempt at humor. Not really what I was expecting.
