Well, it took me a year to read this, but I did finish it.
(My daughter is now almost 18 months old).
This book would be great for 1st time parents that have a good sense of humor and don't mind some curse words dispersed throughout the book. Even if you're baby isn't born yet, you might want to start on this book now, because once the baby arrives, your reading time is minimal.....which is why it took me so long to finish it! (I have an older daughter too.)
