Hilarious and honest, Being Dad tells it like it really is - the unvarnished, unafraid and most definitely un-PC guide to pregnancy and birth and babies for men.

Based on the mega-selling DVDs, Being Dad is the bloke' s guide to pregnancy, birth and babies. Whether the dad-to-be would rather undergo Chinese water torture than attend a child birth class or is keen as mustard but utterly clueless about all things baby, this is the book for him.

Sam Holt and Troy Jones have interrogated hundreds of men around the globe and discovered what dads-to-be are most confused and worried about. On the way they' ve also helpfully exposed what mums and dads to-be are thinking during the different stages of pregnancy. Whether you'll be into sex, or not, whether you need to buy a Toyota Tarago right now, what to do if you go into labour in the carpark at Woolies: the answers are in Being Dad, dished up with reassuring info and irreverent humour.

Full of invaluable suggestions and ideas, Being Dad gives permission to celebrate the miracle of new life your own way. Holt and Jones are standard Aussie blokes who are guilty of most, if not all the disasters and pitfalls outlined in their book. This makes them experts on showing others how to avoid the same mistakes they, and dads the world over, have made. The result for couples is a comprehensive guide on how to prepare for parenthood, a chance to look at what may lie ahead and plenty of pointers on how to stay sane and in love and also have some laughs along the way.

About The Authors

Sam Holt was in greater denial about becoming a father than any man before him. After the birth of son Hugo, Holt decided to discover what becoming a dad was like for others. A serial 'ideas man', he decided to create a guide for couples and dads-to-be with friend and filmmaker Troy Jones and thus Being Dad was born.

Troy Jones is a 33-year-old law student, comedian and owner of a small advertising agency. He is a proud father of Matilda and Charlie. Telling dads-to-be the way it really is earned this regular Joe a place in the US Parents' Hall of Fame.
