User reviews about the book
It was nice to read a male/dad centric book during my wife’s pregnancy. I especially like the pro-dad approach; this book ran wonderfully against something that frustrates me—the portrayal of dads as dumb, bumbling, uninvolved and incompetent in media and culture. The authors encourage dads to be as nurturing and intimate as mothers, dispelling myths that dad’s cannot be so loving with their children. Also encourages treating genders equally—it’s great to wrestle with both boys and girls, great to give your girls trucks too—but also discusses the innate biology which can lead to our more familiar predelections as children.
When I read this book everything changed for me. The way I treat children around me and how regard my child still in the womb. I look forward to the next book.
