Pregnancy for Men : The Whole Nine Months
She's pregnant, which means you're pregnant. Not literally of course, but you'll be slap bang in the middle of nine months of flying hormones, back rubs, and too much talk of childbirth - you're in for the ride of your life. And you're going to be a dad. Fatherhood is just around the corner - are you ready? Most pregnancy books are for the mother but this one is just for you, the new father. We guide you through nine months of joy, excitement, fear, lots of big words, and an expanding bump, so that you emerge from this emotional rollercoaster ready for anything your new born baby will throw at you (which will either be sick, poo or regurgitated milk). From how your baby grows month by month to how to support your partner (it's the little things that count, we tell ourselves), international bestseller Pregnancy for Men is your survival guide to the whole nine months. And when the newborn arrives (and you can't put the car seat in) Mark's on hand with the next instalment, Babies and Toddlers for Men, packed with funny anecdotes and advice from an array of new dads. Or if you're short on time - Pregnancy for Men 101 Tips and Babies and Toddlers for Men 101 Tips.

Having a baby is a big deal. Such a big deal in fact that something like 3 billion books have been written to give women the advice and support they need to get through it safe and sound. This isn't one of them however. The book you are holding is a rare and precious thing; a comprehensive and utterly honest guide designed to help men navigate the choppy waters of pregnancy - waters that will eventually break all over the back seat of your car and usher in the most extraordinary event of your life, witnessing the birth of your child. Taking the whole thing a month at a time and using the experiences of scores of first time Dad's, this is a frank, factual and funny journey charting what men need to know, need to do and need to avoid like the absolute plague when their partners are carrying a baby. This is Pregnancy, but for men.
