Excellent Book for 1st Time Fathers  Jul 3, 2007
I am reading this book now as a first time father and its great, lots of information both pratical and helpful with you as a father to be as well as good advice on how to help the mother, what she needs, suggestoins on how to make her pregnancy easier and safer. I hehly recommend this book
Excellent Resource  Jul 23, 2006
As a first time father this book was very helpful. It did not go into nearly the details that some of the other books did. It was very specific about what a man can do to help his wife through the process. It also looks at some longer term items, like saving for school, planning for the first few weeks after the birth and even packing a travel bag for you to take to the hospital. It is nice light reading in an easy to read format and style. This book will definitely be a benefit to you and your partner. The 5 sections are: the three trimesters, labor & delivery, and at home with the baby. These authors also wrote a number of supporting or complimentary books:

If your husband knows nothing about children...  Jun 13, 2005
This one isn't funny. It isn't very light-hearted. And if your husband/father-to-be already knows much about kids and babies, it probably isn't very helpful either. But if he's a clueless dolt who's never held a baby, and never thought about your needs in any other area of your lives or relationships, and yet you still think he might come 'round to being helpful and sensitive with respect to your pregnancy and birth, this is a fairly straight-forward guide that will offer suggestions such as that he exercise with you, help change diapers, and be sensitive to your needs.

But if you really need this book, you might also consider picking a new father. It starts at the basics and, as another reviewer wrote, assumes the worst. I hope you're (both) starting off ahead of that.
Some useful info, but based on a 1950's relationship  Sep 13, 2004
I skimmed this to screen it before passing it off to my husband, and decided not to ask him to read it. This book seems to assume that (a) the woman is dim and helpless, (b) the man goes to his tough job in the day while the woman does the housework and shopping, and (c) the man is relatively clueless or uninvolved in the housework department. (Does this remind you of that "How to be a Good Wife" guide from the '50's?) For example, the book suggests that the man "help with the laundry." More useful would be "learn to do the laundry if you don't already know how." In many cases, the book describes a situation or condition (e.g., your wife craves unhealthy junk foods), and suggests that the man "encourage her" to do something (make healthier food chooices), which sounds like a contrived way to make yourself involved. More useful idea: volunteer to do the shopping, and then buy veggies instead of cookies. The anecdotes about actual couples range from cute to why-didn't-you-slap-these-people? Unless your relationship is very traditional - they guy really doesn't do any housework and is emotionally reserved, and the woman really does stay at home and has trouble making her own decisions - you may find this book condescending or even insulting. As an rather independent, self-sufficient engineer who got married at 27 and pregnant at 30, I was insulted.
States the Obvious, Assumes the Worst  Sep 3, 2004
This was the first book I got for my husband upon learning we were pregnant, and he found it to be quite condescending. For example, it has sections entitled "in the doghouse" that give men helpful hints like not calling one's pregnant wife a whale. Of course, this has become a running joke in our house...but do most husbands really need a book to tell them not to insult their wives?! It focused more on telling men how to behave towards their partners than on helping the understand their own journey towards fatherhood. Overall, this book seemed to assume the worst about its readership, whereas I would assume that men who choose to read books to prepare for fatherhood are already caring and committed to being good husbands and fathers.

We found a lot more useful information and a much more respectful and supportive tone in "The Expectant Father," and I would recommend that book instead.
