Gearing up for the biggest game of your life
by Benjamin Watson; foreword by Meg Meeker, M.D.
New moms have unending resources to plan and execute a healthy pregnancy and navigate those first months and years as a parent with confidence. New dads? Not so much. Super Bowl champion and father of five Benjamin Watson wants to change all that.
The New Dad’s Playbook is every man’s game plan to being the best partner and the best father, from “preseason” (preparing for fatherhood) to “Super Bowl” (birth) to “postseason” (after baby is home). It helps men understand what their partners are going through physically and emotionally during and after pregnancy, allowing them to support their most important teammate. It tells men what to expect when their baby is home—and what to do when the unexpected happens.
This tell-it-like-it-is book will take new dads from just winging it to winning it. (200 pp.).
