Publisher's Summary

When it comes to the unknown territory of having a baby, moms to be have nearly unending resources to plan and execute a healthy pregnancy and navigate those first months and years as a parent with confidence. New dads? Not so much. They want to get in the game, too, but, says Super Bowl champion Benjamin Watson, "I could find clearer directions for putting together a baby swing than for taking care of a newborn child."

The New Dad's Playbook is every man's game plan to being the best partner and the best father, from preseason (preparing for fatherhood) to Super Bowl (birth) to postseason (after baby is home). It helps men understand what their wives are going through physically and emotionally during and after pregnancy, allowing them to support their most important teammate. It tells men what to expect when their baby is home - and what to do when the unexpected happens. This tell-it-like-it-is book will take men from just winging it to winning it.

Perfect for an expecting father.

This puts a lot of things into perspective. It doesn’t go into much detail, however it gives you a great guide of what you can expect.

great

it was a great insightful book jam-packed with a lot of great helpful information for myself as a new father. Especially one that plays in the NFL right now. I'm a visual learner in the metaphors that resonated with the season coincides to help me recognize what's to come and how it relates to my life as it has always been inside a football. or leaving that back to pregnancy and being there and all of the other different helpful tips of this book helps me understand things a little different

Very insightful

I just finished listening to this. I’m still expecting, so I don’t know how much of this information is good or not. I will say that I love the message of this book. This book is full of information that I didn’t know I wanted to know. It will not let you down! Loved it!

Good Book

Good book with a lot of information but I found it very boring after going through a few chapters. Still worth recommending to new dads.

Opened my eyes

great insight into fatherhood and what women go through during pregnancy, although I found the narrator to be quite boring
