Mums do the heavy lifting of pregnancy and childbirth, often feeling like their other half doesn't understand them at all. Giles' excellent book will go a long way to alleviating that disconnect - funny, down to earth and hugely informative, it might just be the ultimate guide to new parenthood for dads.
