What did you like best about Dude, You're Gonna Be a Dad!? What did you like least?
I enjoyed the quips and funny lists, but ultimately it came up short in substance. The book didn't really mention much that isn't total common sense. I enjoyed it, but not for its intellectual value.
What could John Pfeiffer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Perhaps add more value and have fewer lists. The lists became a little monotonous although they were a good way to organize thoughts. I would have appreciated it if it spent more time going over terms and conditions that would make it easier for men to communicate during doctors visits and with the well educated fairer sex.
Which scene was your favorite?
The ending was marvelous. It was a first hand account of the experience a dad had during the birth of his child. It really helped me visualize what I was in for. I doubt you will find anything quite like it in any other book.
Do you think Dude, You're Gonna Be a Dad! needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
A follow up book would not be necessary since it was designed and succeeds at being an abbreviated 'crash course' with the big details.
Any additional comments?
If you aren't too into audiobooks or big, lofty explanations, this is probably a good listen. It is a quick listen and accomplishes everything it set out to do. Perhaps I am being harsh on a book that admittedly has a title that should have indicated to me the concept of the book, but overall I found the subject matter a little sporadic and the explanations watered down. I can't recommend it enthusiastically, but I wouldn't encourage new fathers to be to avoid it either.

I enjoyed the upbeat nature of the reader and the helpful information provided. This is a must for any fathers to be to listen too to gain more knowledge on whats going on during the pregnancy of their wife.
