A must, but should be read BEFORE the baby arrives or while rocking them back to sleep at 2 am!

I think I read this book as much as my husband did. It was very helpful for both of us. The author gives great advice for new dads in addition to fun things they can do with their new baby and ways to take care of the mom.

This is a terrible book. Any father with any common sense can get by without this book, very poorly written.

I know that most new dads don't care to read a book but there are cute little captions throughout this book that make it easier for a dad to "read" or more likely to skim through. My husband did pick it up periodically and read portions that stood out to him.
