Dave Barry exposes natural childbirth for what it is: a pop phenomenon of the 1960's that, along with paisley bell-bottoms and creative sideburns, deserves a rest. His new book gives parents-to-be the hard facts they need. He examines the new federal law requiring prospective fathers to free themselves from their self-made macho prison - to laugh, cry, love and just generally behave like certified wimps.

Barry reveals, for the first time, the secret chant for painless childbirth. He also reveals why no secret chant could possibly take a woman's mind off the fact that she is in such pain, that she wants a gigantic comet to crash into the earth and kill her and her husband and the doctor and the nurses and everyone else in the world.

Listener Opinions

    " This book is hilarious. Dave Barry manages to narrate the first three years of raising a child without being offensive to virtually any parenting style or birthing preference, which is a tricky tightrope to walk. I laughed out loud a LOT. An easy, quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Millerbug | 9/15/2013

    " It was a cute read. Although, I'm way past having more children (closer to grandparenthood... and I'm hoping that is in the distant future) But I did get a kick out of a lot senerios in this book. "
