Description

Take your average guide for new mothers, chuck most of the stuff about breast feeding and ditch the deep background
research and stats, then generously pepper with illustrations and burley humor and what do you have? Your average guide
for new fathers. Be Prepared follows that template pretty closely, and that's really quite an acceptable thing. Yes,
there's a bit too much emphasis here on broadly drawn manly stuff like changing a diaper at a ballgame, but there's also
heaps of useful advice that's cleverly and efficiently presented for pops who, despite their best intentions, really
aren't prepared to dig into encyclopedia-sized tomes. The basics (childproofing, bathing, feeding, entertaining)
intermix with nifty sidebars (homemade bath toys, foods to never give your baby, exercises for dads) in easy-to-peruse
chapters organized according to the age of the offspring up to age 1. There are more thorough how-to guides for new
dads, but for most men moving into fatherhood, Be Prepared will fill the bill. --Steven Stolder
