    If You Are Thinking About Becoming A Father - Stay Away From This Book

    I just bought this book on Friday and I am so disappointed. It is horrible! If I didn't have other resources, I would be in real trouble. The book is written as if to a college student who accidentally got his girlfriend pregnant and the discussion is so juvenile that it is borderline offensive as a man. Most of the book deals with telling you how different your life is going to be and how it will never be the same. While I am aware of this fact, the book left me with the feeling of WHAT HAVE I DONE! rather than the joy of having a baby with my wife. Page after page of the same. I finally had to stop reading it last night and said if I only had this book to use to prepare me, I would feel like running - screaming from the situation. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND STAY AWAY FROM THIS BOOK!

    Great Gift

    I gave this book to my husband for Christmas, and since he has a short attention span, this book was great. It features little facts here and there throughout the chapter, as to keep his mind thinking. It also informed him as to why I'm going through emotional and physical pains, and how he is not the cause of them. This was great for him.
