Library Journal
This handbook for first-time dads contains brief, basic facts about pregnancy, birth, and its aftermath. It cuts to the chase of the major milestones, such as the positive pregnancy test, the actual day of birth, and the baby's one-month mark. Fathers without prior exposure to pregnancy, childbirth, or child rearing will find this book very helpful. By the same token, it leaves very little to the imagination by condensing and bottom-lining most issues and topics. Though brief, the 36 sections even have review tips to encapsulate highpoints. Future fathers who require a broader scope will enjoy Kevin Nelson's The Daddy Guide (Contemporary Bks., 1998), with chapters on birth, childcare, cooking, money, and more. Libraries might also consider Gene B. Williams's The New Father's Panic Book (Avon, 1997), which covers the same time line without Richardson's compressed format. Recommended for public libraries.

    Perfect gift for new fathers!

    There are so many books out there for new mommies that sometimes the new daddies are forgotten. Finally, there is a great book for expectant fathers to read. Daddy Smarts is written in an informative and light hearted manner, making the reader feel like they are listening to a friend who has been there and understands what you are going through, not just another 'expert'. This book is the perfect gift for any new father or mother.
