Publisher's Summary

Dave Barry exposes natural childbirth for what it is: a pop phenomenon of the 1960's that, along with paisley bell-bottoms and creative sideburns, deserves a rest. His new book gives parents-to-be the hard facts they need. He examines the new federal law requiring prospective fathers to free themselves from their self-made macho prison - to laugh, cry, love and just generally behave like certified wimps. Barry reveals, for the first time, the secret chant for painless childbirth. He also reveals why no secret chant could possibly take a woman's mind off the fact that she is in such pain, that she wants a gigantic comet to crash into the earth and kill her and her husband and the doctor and the nurses and everyone else in the world.

Poor Quality

This is a hilarious book that I think is read quite well, however the recording quality is extremely poor. The sound goes in and out and at best is very quiet. A real disappointment.

I smiled a lot!

This is a short piece, 1 ½ hours. I’ve heard these things before, but it’s fun to hear Dave’s take. Example: a baby’s purpose in life is filling diapers and putting disgusting things in his mouth.

Audiobook narrator Arte Johnson was good.

Genre: humorous essays
