Primarily aimed at first-time fathers, this guidebook not only helps men understand the process they go through when dealing with pregnancy but also shows them how they can participate in positive ways. Author Pratik Patil offers information and advice that doesn't appear in other pregnancy guides. The main purpose of this book is to help men help their wives during pregnancy and also to teach them how to take care of their own physical and mental health in their journey into pregnancy.

  • 4 out of 5 stars

This "essay" (I don't think it deserves to be called a book) was a waste of time. Sounds more like an assignment that a junior high student had written with only a mediocre grasp of the English language. The author is not a doctor, writer, or humorist yet tries to play the role of all three without citing any sources along the way. Thus he fails miserably at reaching a level that could be achieved by a real doctor or humorist or writer. At times if you remove the subject of pregnancy from the context, the advice sounds more like things you would teach a toddler. Really, I should stay healthy by going to the gym and washing my hands after I go to the restroom? Thanks for wasting my Audible credit and my time. I hope you aren't profiting in any significant way from having published this drivel. And for the record, repeat Lord of the Rings references have no place in a pregnancy book, unless of course it's aimed at adolescents. Perhaps your essay should be called "Pregnancy and Boys"?
