Eventually most men recognise unfamiliar emotions which are a result of impending fatherhood. These could be anything from a mixture of incredulity at finding your wife or girlfriend in bed with the milkman, to amusement at trying to figure out why she has put on 3 stone in weight and pukes when you mention 'fish supper'. It might even be the confusion you feel when you receive this book as a present.
Being faced with the prospect of having a baby in your life is serious. You have two options. First to retreat into the swamp of fatherhood misery, lurching from one slime filled pit of parenting hopelessness to the next. Second is READ THIS BOOK and make your resolve to survive as a dad.
Notice that this book is different to other parent craft books because this is a MANual, a book for MEN written by a MAN. There is no meaningful theorising about alcohol intake and sperm count, phases of Saturn and fertility or 'how to look good in stirrups'.
Men need advice on issues such as ensuring your new baby will be male and, yours. There is also some information on how pregnancy might affect your partner, wife or girlfriend.
If you are the man who doesn't notice your wife shaving her head and sharing your flat with Hare Krishna devotees then this book is for you. Even if you aren't average this book will guide you through the murkiest water a man may ever have to navigate.
