The best audiobook I\ve seen for new dads

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

My wife just had our first child a few weeks ago and it is not exaggerating to say that I was absolutely terrified and unsure how will I be able to handle it. I'd been reading my wife's pregnancy books, and they were quite useless for me, so I decide to get myself a better read. Becoming a (good) father is a journey and I feel more prepared after listening to this audiobook, because it covered so many different topics about this subject. I highly recommend it!

lackluster.

list heavy. anecdotal. poorly researched. far too short to be of any real use. more pamphlet than book.

Don't mind being talked down to? You'll love it.

Couldn't finish this book. Felt to much like it was aimed at dads who don't want to really bond with or know their baby. Most of the advice is based on the idea that you're used to having your wife not work, stay home, clean and make dinner. it's 2016 this book is terrible. what a waste of time/money.

Good, but.....

It had good tips and it was well written, however the author refers to your baby as "she" and "her". If you have a girl then it will just seem natural. But I had a boy and it was very distracting. I wouldn't recommend that they him or he, but rather change it to "it" or "the baby" to keep it more universal, no mater what gender the child is.

Pick another book, unless you are 16

Well if you are a 16 year old boy and you just found out your girlfriend is pregnant, go ahead and listen to this book. Otherwise you already know 95% of the tips and you can move on to another book.

Good for a laugh- dangerous information about care

Would you try another book from Clayton Geoffreys and/or John Eastman?

No.. Certainly not

What was most disappointing about Clayton Geoffreys’s story?

poor writing and dangerous information about childcare

What didn’t you like about John Eastman’s performance?

Sounded like a bad safety guide for a B-side amusement part ride

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Becoming a Father?

Scrap it all

Any additional comments?

How did this even pass your minimum requirements to be on audible?..
