This book begins with his trip to a palm reader who announces he has three children he is unaware of having. He realizes that while this was a hoax, he was getting older, single and childless. He married a young woman a year or two later, and life was good. Of course when the focal point of his dinner parties became the digital blood pressure machine that he purchased (taking turns checking each other's blood pressure), he realized his biological clock was ticking faster than he cared to admit.
This funny book takes us through all of the woes of pregnancy in Nealon's humorous fashion. Even the purchase of a stroller becomes an ordeal when we consider safety as well as comfort. I enjoyed the bits of wisdom that he weaves throughout his humor, and his "regular guy" appeal. While the book is definitely targeted at those poor men trying to deal with their new lives as fathers-to-be, it is a good read for anyone who was ever pregnant or ever lived with a pregnant woman.
