Finally—A Pregnancy Book That Won't Put Men to Sleep

My Boys Can Swim! tells real men everything they really want to know about pregnancy, such as: How much is it going to cost? Why does your wife primp before seeing her doctor when she hasn't put a stitch of make-up on for you in months? And, most important, what's it going to do to your sex life?

This rollicking, laugh-out-loud book is for expectant dads in search of bottom-line pregnancy information, without all that boring touchy-feely stuff you find in those books written for women. Inside you'll discover helpful—and hilarious—information and insights on such topics as:

The Maternity Wardrobe: "A key part of the maternity wardrobe is maternity underwear—parachute-like undies big enough to fit an NFL defensive lineman."

Baby Names: "Don't give your kids mockable names like Thaddeus, which is Greek for 'I'm a dork and should be beaten up.'"

The Birth: "No one told me it's normal that babies' heads can be misshapen at birth. I was convinced that my wife gave birth to Veldar, the conehead."

Synopsis:

Congrats: Youre going to be a dad!

Now what?

Dude, relax; youre going to be fine. But it wouldnt hurt to get a few pointers—a road map of what lies ahead. Thats what this book is for.

From Dude to Dad gives you the need-to-know essentials on pregnancy, birthing, and parenthood, and how its okay to be scared out of your mind. Youll learn what the expecting mom is going through during each trimester, how you can be the best partner and dad-to-be, and how to immediately start bonding with baby.

Be prepared for the arrival that will ultimately change your life in the best way possible.

Synopsis:

Pregnancy books generally cater to women — but what about the father-to-be? At last — here's a pregnancy book that men will actually read! My Boys Can Swim is a wry, witty, endlessly entertaining book that addresses the concerns of every dad-to-be, with unique guy insights you'll never find in those other pregnancy books.
