be totally honest. This is not the kind of audiobook that can help you. It's not a "how-to," a "when-to," or a "what-to-expect." It's not even endorsed by anyone remotely connected to the medical profession. (Although a cousin of mine who sells carpeting to doctors' offices not only found it "insightful" and "informative," but felt that, "if properly vacuumed, it should last a lifetime.")<br><br>"A fine endorsement," you say.

Paul Reiser is hilarious!12 February 2013 - Published on Amazon.com
I read this book when I was seventeen because I was on an airplane and didn't have anything else to read. I was laughing out loud and I do not have babies, nor had I ever cared for one when I was that age. Over a decade later, my best friend just had her first baby. I bought it for her and told her that s it may or may not be funny because I was not sure if it would be true to life or what... I barely remember it. I just recall the laughter that made me look insane on the airplane. She told me that she was laughing so hard she was brought to tears while reading this book. So young or old, with or without children, the book is just funny. I can't wait to re-read it when she is finished!

True, true8 June 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Register writes delightfully about the wonderful, horrible, terrifying, and delightful aspects of becoming a parent. If you're wondering what it's like to parent a baby, here's your read. As a grandmother, it brings back so many memories. The experiences of parenthood are pretty much universal, so don't let inevitable horror stories stop you from taking the plunge. For every bad day, there's a lifetime of good ones.

Paul Reiser is hysterical. I was laughing with tears in my eyes when he described the large baby department they went into. While it is truly laugh out loud funny he really gets what it is like to have a baby.

On many of the laughs, I would be laughing so much that I coughed and/or my stomach muscles rippled. It's a fun, light-hearted read with moments of clarity and depth thrown in to anchor it. Really enjoyed it and found myself wishing I knew more men that have a Reiser-esque approach to life.

Such a cute book!10 February 2005 - Published on Amazon.com
I was having some kind of post-partum anxiety or something - really stressed and worried, etc. A friend had given me this book and I began reading it each day. It was so cute and funny and something any new parent can relate to. I felt like Paul Reiser was my friend - he seems to be such a nice guy! Anyway, this light reading was a welcome change from the 100 baby care books that I was obscessing over. I was so afraid of doing something wrong! Well, my baby is doing fine and almost a year old now! And I look forward to reading this cute little book again sometime. I would also love to give it as a gift.
