A Dad, a Little Dude, and a Due Date
by Christian Piatt
"Employing a laugh-out-loud vocabulary, Piatt leads us through all the pains and, ultimately, joys of fatherhood."
—Landon Whitsitt, author of Open Source Church
We all have heard time and time again of the changes a woman goes through when she is pregnant. But what about the man? Doesn't his life change too? Read more about this book and author.
"So there I sat on the couch, pregnancy test in one hand and coffee cup in the other, pretty much wanting to vomit but trying to smile instead."
"Piatt's book is a bit like a baby itself: surprising, funny, lovable, and just a little bit gross." Read what A.J. Jacobs and others are saying about the new book.
"I think I learned I'm probably better at writing about fatherhood than I actually am at fatherhood. So here's hoping this book goes big so I can pay for my kids' therapy." A funny and real Q&A with the author of PregMANcy.

Christian opens himself up and shares vulnerable stories of his successes, failures, and “growing edges” as a dad. It was wonderful to read through it now as I am in the world of being a new dad as well...
In a world where dads are all too often absent (or absent-minded), where our concepts of Dad are shaped by Homer Simpson or Archie Bunker, it’s refreshing to hear the story of a dad who is attentive and engaged in family life.

Why do we do it? Why say “yes” to that second (third, fourth….) baby? As Piatt says, “We don’t have kids because we’re guaranteed the results we want. We have them because the love contained within us longs to be expressed.”
For those who are parents, having friends who are parents, or are thinking about becoming parents, there is much hard-earned learning and laughter in Piatt’s latest book.
A novel for anyone who has been on the journey toward reluctant fatherhood needs to read this book; you will find traces of yourself and your own journey within these pages, whether you have children or not.
