Non-Fiction Review: Yes, You're Pregnant, But What About Me? by Kevin Nealon

For our anniversary, my lovely wife presented me with the book Yes, You're Pregnant, But What About Me? by comedian Kevin Nealon (of SNL fame). She thought this looked like a good choice of books for me, the soon-to-be father. As it turns out, she was right! :)

The book started out a bit slow and awkward for me. I attribute this to it being Nealon's first stab at book-writing (that I could find). However, by a third of the way into the book, Nealon really found his stride, keeping the storytelling and one-liners rolling smoothly. By the last few chapters, I hardly wanted to put the book down, just to find out if they had a boy or girl and how the whole delivery went (apparently it went smoothly).

Personally, I found the parallels between his thoughts on everything and mine to be quite eerie. His quips were well in-line with my thoughts on the whole pregnancy and delivery. It's nice to know that I'm not alone (or unique) in those observations and concerns.

Lest you think this book is just for guys, incidentally, I think that women may enjoy it, too. If for no other reason than to get a better understanding of how guys perceive the whole process. As for guys whose wives are expecting, this is a must-read, and it won't bog you down for a long period of time. Definitely recommended!
