From my husband: Organization makes sense. Good chronologically, do not have to read all at once. Easy to read, not too much medical jargon. Explanations were in a understandable format. Wording in general was easy to read, not like a text book. Inserts of real life examples and humorous events keep the book interesting. Not just about the pregnant woman, but also things to think about when baby comes home. Useful information, that as a male, he did not know about. Good explanations about the female body to the male reader in what to expect. And generally how to know that your wife is not just crazy. Instructions and pointers it gives for possible situations were clearly laid out and easy to follow if needed; such as emergency delivery at home and transportation to get to the hospital and so on. Overall it was worded in such a way that it did not drag on and on. It was a decent book to just sit down and read bits in an evening or so and gave good information. This comes from a guy who would rather be out in the garage working or playing video games instead of reading. And when he does read it would be a sci/fi or adventure book.

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.
