A prequel to Michael Crider's successful first book about fatherhood: a humorous look at the transformation from a ladies' man to his lady's main man
Publishers WeeklyCrider has no trouble tackling difficult questions. In this prequel to The Guy's Guide to Surviving Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the First Year of Fatherhood, he dissects his own relationship with his wife-from first hello at a college frat party, through humiliation and embarrassment-on the long road to marriage. With such chapter headings as "Open Mouth, Insert Foot," "Pop Goes the Question" and "Booze, the Bride and Blue Balls," the book is comical and witty, and offers honest advice (and even the occasional anecdote about masturbating astronauts) to the hapless, love-lost guy in every man. (Feb.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Library JournalCrider (The Guy's Guide to Surviving Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the First Year of Fatherhood) offers a uniquely male viewpoint on meeting the parents, popping the question, and settling down after the honeymoon. In the chapter titled "Men Are from Bars, Women Are from Versace," he highlights the differences between men and women, including their plumbing and senses of humor. He uses personal examples to discuss disagreements between a newly married husband and wife and states that the key to a long-lasting marriage is never to fall out of love at the same time. This very funny book offers a usually ignored audience a new take on the dating game. Recommended for libraries that serve the target audience.
