Its a sattire book that makes it fun for dads. Perfect to add to a "daddy" kit for a baby shower or expectant father. It pokes fun at how much having a baby costs & what other fun things you could do with that money. It allows dads a funny release from the seriousness of it all & gives them a laid back silly approach to childbirth, cravings, and emotions of pregnancy. Just pick this book up & thumb through to a random page & see how silly it is. The comments had me cracking up. For example... on one page it says things about eating healthy.... but guess what.. You arent pregnant so while your wife eats lots of leafy veggies, you can pig out on greasy pizza and watch football. Give it a try. Its not a long book & easily can be scanned for funny stuff to read.

I found this book a waste of time. Although it attempts to take a lighthearted tone to the subject of pregnancy and preparing for childbirth, I found it quite stupid and not very helpful at all.
