A breath of fresh air
Would thoroughly recommend this book to any prospective parents. It's not patronising and doesn't try to make light of difficult situations. It's down to earth and honest without being off-puttingly blunt. Genuinely helpful tips as well, on all sorts of subjects. I much preferred it to Rought Guide and even Miriam Stoppard - maybe just me, but thought this was a really honest and refreshing approach that doesn't try to make it all into something out of a comedy sketch show.
