New Giveaway: ABC's for Expectant Dads - 10 awesome copies

By kenny friedman on Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Filed Under: ,

Winners have been picked for the giveaway. Todd was so nice as to give all who entered by the deadline a copy of his book. Thanks all who entered...I sent an email to you for your info. Please email me (info on the header) if you don't get that email. Rommel I could not find your email...please let me know your contact info.



A bit ago I found Todd Lieman in Twitterland and he sent me a copy of his book ABC's for Expectant Dads: The Ultimate A- for Dads-in-Training. I'd looked at a bunch of expectant dad books and I thought most were terrible. I did pick up The Expectant Father and I liked it but I haven't looked at it in months.

I think it's tough for dad's because we're just reading about what's going on with the mothers and it's easier to hear it from them. Staci is reading so much that she keeps me up to date on things I should know and I'm sure most expectant moms are the same. I'm also luckily in that doing this blog has connected me to a bunch of great moms, new-moms and expectant-moms so I'm getting tons of good info.

The books also offer a lot of info on support and taking care of yourself but that seems like a no-brainer to me.

So when I got this book I was expecting more of the same...I was expecting to be bored. Then I looked through it. I think it's truly awesome. I actually wrote Todd to let him know this would be the book I'd write if someone was fool enough to pay me to write a book. (Please use the email tab above to contact me about that book deal...thanks.)

It's basically laid out in a desk reference or encyclopedia style with the chapters from A-Z. Each letter/chapter has all the terms you need to know with short definitions each. It has serious stuff like; Ectopic Pregnancy, Cutting the Cord and every blogger mom's favorite Mucous Plug. But the book also has personality by talking about: Free Time (not having any,) walking on Egg Shells, and two of my faves Potty (having to say it) and the Due Date (the math being fuzzy.) Todd also touches on products, family and social changes. It ranges from before birth to the first few months with baby.

Trust me, it's a great book for expectant dads, new dads and even expectant moms...Staci learned some stuff from it.

Here's the deal with the giveaway...Todd has been incredibly generous and is offering signed copies to 10 lucky readers of this blog.

Prize: 10 signed copies of ABCs for Expectant Dads (one copy per winner...10 winners.)
