A man's man swaps beer bottles for baby bottles - and lives to tell the tale! At high school, Michael Crider was the joker. Fast-forward ten years and the funny man has married and become the family man. The Guy';s Guide to Surviving Pregnancy, Childbirth and the First Year of Fatherhood - Crider's candid, down-to-earth account of his transformation - proves that even without much sleep, he has kept his sense of humour completely intact. From the moment he hears the unexpected news that the pregnancy test is positive to the end of his son's first year of life, Michael Crider is awed, anxious and all-too-human. In between these milestones, he endures the aches and pains of his wife's pregnancy (which had a clear impact on his own bodily comfort), swallows his pride when bunny wallpaper replaces his beloved Budweiser mirror, has a short and only partially-appreciated stint as her labour coach on the Big Day, and experiences every one of his son's "firsts" as though they were his own. Honest, informative, hilarious and heart-warming, The Guy's Guide to Surviving Pregnancy, Childbirth and the First Year of Fatherhood is a must-read for all new parents.

Reviews

"Michael Crider's The Guy's Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth and the First Year of Fatherhood is absolutely hysterical. No matter what stage of the fatherhood process you're in, you've got to read this book. Whether you're still watching your wife expand (and listening to her gripe!) or if you're up all night with the little one, this book will provide much-needed comic relief."

Not as much useful information as I would have like.

Highly recommended for all Dad's to be. This guy lays it out what will actually happen and how your life will change for the better and worse. He keeps everything lighthearted and non-scientific.

In fact, it had me laughing out loud at least 20 times, and not many books can do that.

Excellent book that is informative in a very humorous way. Would definitely recommend for light reading.

I bought this as a gift for my friend who is a guy who is expecting a child with his partner.

He was very anxious about the whole pregnancy thing and feels a bit of light relief after reading this book, he said he found it hilarious and and took the scare factor out of having a baby... or at least for a moment. Also very helpful tips and info. From a guys perspective, he found it easy to read and flowed well in a way he understood.
