The fourth edition of this best-selling, ground-breaking, information-packed guide for dads-to-be is now significantly, updated, revised, and expanded.

We are expecting! The twentieth-anniversary edition of this thoroughly updated and revised parenting classic remains the most informative and reassuring book for expectant fathers everywhere. In addition to sharing the wisdom of the ages, Armin A. Brott, Mr. Dad, presents new insight into the emotional, financial, and physical—yes, physical—effects of impending parenthood on men. Thanks to this handy reference moms-to-be will know their partner understands and supports them during this anxious and exciting time, and that he has all the tools he needs to be a fantastic, hands-on dad.

This information-packed, month-by-month guide incorporates the expertise of top practitioners in their fields, from obstetricians and birth-class instructors to psychologists and sociologists. It also draws from Brott’s own experience as a father of three and from the real-world experiences of the thousands of dads he’s interviewed. With the humor of New Yorker cartoons and Brott’s gentle approach, The Expectant Father serves as a friendly and readable companion for dads-to-be seeking confidence, guidance, and joy!

  • Great Read

    By Silversides
    It was nice to read a male/dad centric book during my wife’s pregnancy. I especially like the pro-dad approach; this book ran wonderfully against something that frustrates me—the portrayal of dads as dumb, bumbling, uninvolved and incompetent in media and culture. The authors encourage dads to be as nurturing and intimate as mothers, dispelling myths that dad’s cannot be so loving with their children. Also encourages treating genders equally—it’s great to wrestle with both boys and girls, great to give your girls trucks too—but also discusses the innate biology which can lead to our more familiar predelections as children.

    When I read this book everything changed for me. The way I treat children around me and how regard my child still in the womb. I look forward to the next book.
