Covers everything a modern-day dad could face from babies to older kids with spot-on, hilarious insights. Relatable, funny child-rearing stories are peppered with wisdom. Adapted from Moe’s popular blog, a great non-generic guidebook for fathers out there. A great gift for expectant fathers.
This book covers less medical and developmental information than other expectancy books, but delivers helpful information nonetheless.
Comprehensive and serious in tone but engaging enough for non-readers. Helps dads-to-be understand what to expect in the mother’s and child’s development. And also what he might be going through emotionally, and other under-addressed topics. Addresses a diversity of impending fatherhood situations (like IVF, adoption, active-duty fatherhood, etc.).
Some reviewers view as a bit condescending towards men and authors’ opinions offensive on certain topics.
A truly funny book with hilarious illustrations. Easy-to-read; advice doled out in bite-sized portions with pictures. Cuts to the chase, which men like. Helpful and down-to-earth. Women are also fans of this book over their "boring" and lengthy expectant-mother books.
Some readers don’t like the sarcastic tone of this book. Some information is outdated and possibly sexist, like the tech portion.
Lots of information for dads of daughters, covering all ages from newborn to adult children. Advice supported by research and true stories. Touches on a wide-range of sensitive topics. Emphasizes the huge impact men have on their daughters’ lives. Something in the book for everyone, including mothers and daughters.
Some readers consider the author's tone unnecessarily fear-based and negative. Also, this is a faith-based book, which limits its appeal.
Great for men who are not big book readers. A humorous look at the basic essentials. Both entertaining and informational. A fast read. Really helps first-time fathers prepare for labor and delivery. Helps alleviate pre-fatherhood anxiety. Tough yet motivational in tone.
A bit basic. Will not help you with certain specifics such as colic, nor does it give you a deeper understanding of what the mother is going through.
