Summary

Congrats: You’re going to be a dad!

Now what?  

Dude, relax; you’re going to be fine. But it wouldn’t hurt to get a few pointers - a road map of what lies ahead. That’s what this audiobook is for.  

From Dude to Dad gives you the need-to-know essentials on pregnancy, birthing, and parenthood, and how it’s okay to be scared out of your mind. You’ll 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 the baby.  

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

Not as good as you think

When i listened to the sample i thought it would give me facts of pregnancy and how to over come them. maybe i have selective hearing but all i heard is. Dude do the house work dude do massage dude cook but still Dude be yourself too. some good information how your baby grows week to week but that information is on thr NHS website. overall you can just read most information online. also this makes me so scared more scared than i was before

Overall pretty helpful

I’m still in that terrified but starting to feel excited stage this book helped me to feel that I wasn’t alone or that my feelings weren’t that different from anyone else. At 35 and the last dad to be I feel like this book was more for someone mid twenties or at least the first guy in your group to be a dad. Still overall helpful and informative I would recommend this to others...

informative without being a text book

very great book for a long time dudes trying to settle down. I really appreciate the fact that it focuses on what we as the partner can do. the wrap up at the end is a true gem that I will be coming back to during the entire pregnancy.

The most pointless way I've ever spent money. This book offers no actual information. Don't waste your money or time.
