Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A three-trimester evolutionary crash course to guide the prehistoric papa-to-be through the prenatal, preparental wilderness. Every man should read it!

Whatand#8217;s a clueless caveman about to become DAD to do?and#160; After all, itand#8217;s tough carrying a child for nine monthsand#151;for him as well as for her. Heand#8217;s just not sure how to behave. But help is on hand, in the form of a reassuring (and hysterically funny) course for the totally perplexed. Along with a large dose of humor, it provides the father-to-be with all the know-how he needs to become a well-prepared, well-heeled partner whoand#8217;s really ready to stand upright and embrace his new responsibilitiesand#133;rather than cowering from them. Every cave-student will find out how to support his mate through this emotional time, cope with his own feelings, deal with baby-related projects, and perform admirably during labor and delivery. So whether itand#8217;s catering to his exhausted companionand#8217;s needs by preparing a nutritional and tasty meal or engaging in a snuggle session when she craves a little cuddling, with the help of this book a guy will become the proud Cro-Magnon caregiver he longs to be!

Review:

"This engagingly entertaining and instructive pregnancy guide is based on the conceit that most men are 'twenty-first-century Cro-Magnons' at those times when an expectant father 'stops, scratches his head, and mutters to his woman, 'I don't get it.' ' What is immediately obvious about the book, however, is that it is actually a superb overview of the birthing experience and is a perfect companion to a classic like What to Expect When You're Expecting. But the Cro-Magnon conceit is what will make this a perennial gift book for expectant fathers, since even the most enlightened male might not initially be interested in learning about prenatal massages, amniocentesis and a wonderful range of easy meals to prepare for a tired spouse, all of which this book expertly details. Best of all, to serve as the reader's mentor and guide before and during childbirth, first-time authors Port and Ralston introduce a typical modern caveman named Gronk ('Role Models: John Belushi'), whose deer-in-the-headlights reactions to subjects such as sex during pregnancy are delightfully drawn by Kendall.
