This book differs from other pregnancy books because it is written from a male perspective and targeted at a male audience. It based on author's knowledge and own experience, supported by short private story. Some Readers of this book described it as the male pregnancy bible, others have said it felt like they had an invisible hand guiding them through the highs and lows of pregnancy and fatherhood. Many other readers have also testified of being able to anticipate and understand certain pregnancy symptoms before their partners even begin to feel them, thereby helping them quell the associated nervousness and enable them better manage certain situations. Pregnancy they say is a beautiful thing. So beautiful that is never leaves a place the same. The process of pregnancy and its aftermaths (childbirth and parenthood) are mostly irreversible. Things never fully return to status quo. It is often associated with heightened emotions for both parents and faulty communication as a result of poor knowledge and/or ignorance can lead to a long list of issues that may be difficult to solve down the line. Many men genuinely want to help out. They want to participate, be hands on, and try to understand what their partners are feeling, however they are often handicapped by a lack of knowledge. This book offers a wealth of knowledge on navigating through this phase.

You're having a baby. That's it. Game over, man. Life as you know it is done. Go ahead, freak out. Comic Chris Mancini was terrified of his impending fatherhood. But soon after throwing up upon seeing the little blue line, he realized that most expectant dads sometimes feel nervous, depressed, or powerless -- like a new baby is guy-kryptonite. Chris has been there and survived it. He'll talk you off the ledge. Naturally, you have plenty of questions: How many diapers will I really have to change? Will I ever have sex again? When should I mention that new 50-inch LCD television I want? Is it okay to play Grand Theft Auto while I hold my kid? Aren't there robots that can do most of this stuff by now? From fearing the ovulation kit, to leaving your child with a complete stranger when you go back to work, to the best and worst parts of being a parent, to wondering if Dr. Spock really is like Mr. Spock, Pacify Me is full of honest, hilarious, and insightful advice for new dads. Like, if you screw up a little the first time you're alone with the baby, it's not as if she's going to tattle. And babies love the mall. The truth is, the anxiety leading up to your child's birth is way worse than the anxiety of actually having a child. Soon you'll discover that the joy of experiencing life through innocent new eyes more than makes up for having to send your inner teenager to bed before midnight, unless there's something cool on Adult Swim.
