The Dude's Guide to Pregnancy


Dad's day is tomorrow and I want to share a book just for dad's-to-be called The Dudes' Guide to Pregnancy: Dealing with Your Expecting Wife, Coming Baby, and the End of Life as You Knew It. This is the book for the Dad who sees the humor in this parenting business (and lets face it if you misplace your sense of humor all is lost).

Bill Lloyd and Scott Finch seem to have set out to write the male equivalent of What to Expect When You're Expecting. They aim to bond men together around the mysteries of childbirth.

Here's a little excerpt from the "Extrasexual Perception" section:

As soon as the women in your wife's life learn that she's pregnant , they all become instant experts in the pseudo-science that is predicting your baby's gender. While out friend science strongly frowns upon this ridiculous crap, he rarely says anything, because he's too busy trying to score with your wife's friends.

If you like this little quote, you'll love this book. It's full of nitty gritty stuff that "dudes" don't want to talk about over a beer but really wish they knew (like what the afterbirth is all about). The author's suggest "dudes" grab a beer and enjoy their wealth of wisdom. I say enjoy the laughs.
