    DescriptionThis is a practical, down-to-earth and unintimidating guide for new fathers and fathers-to-be which describes everything men need to know about pregnancy and the first 12 months after birth. Written from an entirely male perspective, this book aims to demystify the art of fatherhood and awaken men to the realisation that there is nothing to fear about being a dad. The book is written and packaged in such a way as to ensure it reaches new fathers from all backgrounds - including those who wouldn't usually pick up a book. Lots of photographs throughout show dads doing everything from holding a newborn correctly to changing nappies and bathing the baby.The narrative is friendly and engaging and is broken up with lots of subheadings so specific information can be located and digested easily. The three authors launched the website named diyfather on Father's Day 2007 due to a serious shortage of parenting advice exclusively targeting fathers. The response has been phenomenal. With more than 300,000 hits from around the world, the trio expect that number to rise to half a million within the year.
