Our Top 10 Recommendations for Expectant Father Books
Pregnancy is a decidedly feminine domain. Your partner’s pregnancy can often be a time when you feel left out and helpless. You want to help but you’re really not sure how. But men have an important role to play too (aside from the obvious one at the moment of conception!).
Introducing Today’s Most Popular Expectant Father Book
“Dude, You’re Gonna be a Dad! How to Get (Both of You) Through the Next Nine Months” by John Pfeifer. This is an incredibly popular expectant father book that has helped thousands of American dads navigate the minefield of their wife or partner’s pregnancy. Read on for more information on the book and a guest review from one of our reader’s loving (and so supportive) husband, Karl Rowe.
Pfeiffer will coach you through everything you need to know to be a supportive and involved partner to your pregnant wife. With his witty and refreshing approach, he’ll guide a father expecting a baby through everything from offering emotional support, to decorating a nursery, to packing a hospital bag.
It also gives practical advice on how to be fully involved in the decision-making around the pregnancy and birth process. After all, as John Pfeiffer himself says, you don’t want a kid named Percy!
Copies of “Dude, You’re Gonna be a Dad!” are extremely popular expecting father gifts because they are fun and witty but also offer useful, practical advice to the father expecting first baby. The book is available in both Kindle and paperback editions.
If you want to be more involved in your partner’s pregnancy, “Dude You’re Gonna Be a Dad” is an excellent choice.

This book totally changed the way I think about pregnancy and parenting. After reading it, I’m way better at supporting and understanding my wife. Before reading it I was really unsure what I could do to support my wife. But now I know exactly what my role is. Plus, it was super easy and entertaining to read. And, yes, my wife has definitely noticed the difference!
This expectant father book by John Pfeifer has a refreshing perspective. It’s packed with witty stories and lots of practical (and decidedly manly) advice for any modern expecting father. A huge range of stories and frank advice on how to be supportive and involved are offered up by Pfeiffer in a coach-like style.
Just like hundreds of other readers on Amazon.com. I gave this book a5-starr rating and would recommend it to any father to be who is ready to “man up” and be a real family man.
I’d also recommend it to anyone who’s wondering what to get an expecting father as a “congratulations” gift. Unlike many of the other funny, gimmicky gifts for an expecting father, this one is witty and fun but ultimately useful as well.
I’m a better husband and will be a better parent for having read this book – thank you so much for recommending it.
