I gave this as a gift to my son who was not that enthusiastic about reading "another" pregnancy info book. I asked him to read one chapter, he was interested immediately in the info. The interest let to another chapter, another section, re-reading of another are. This book was informative, up-to-date with the times, and this young man very much appreciated this book. The book is not just about "the pregnancy", but many subjects indirectly are influenced by the couple's pregnancy. Great read for the guys (and gals)

This was a very good book to read for the first time you are expecting a child. It provides good overall information. It brings a lot of material to your fingertips. If you need more sources of information for certain things you may run into, such as complications or the such, it points you in the right direction to find more in-depth material on the subject.

My wife bought this book for me when we first found out she was pregnant. It is really the first resource I have found that addresses the father's feelings, emotions, challenges, and changes that he is and will go through during his wife's pregnancy. It also explains what your wife is going through, and how to help out with the various challenges she is facing as well. The best part is that it is not written by an author, but by a medical professional. I highly recommend this book to all expectant fathers.
