A friend would like to give a book as a gift to a male friend who is expecting his first baby. Any great recommendations for books that are directed at DADS? :)

I'd recommend Playful Parenting by Lawrence Cohen and Becoming the Parent You Want To Be by Laura Davis and Janis Keyser

Unless he is a serious-only guy, if you get him a normal parenting book, at least consider getting him a funny one too.  http://www.amazon.com/Safe-Baby-Handling-Tips-David/dp/0762424915  This book even had my DH almost pee himself laughing.  Depends on how well you know him though.

That looks hilarious!  I wish I knew someone who was pg with their first so I could give them a copy!
