The Diary Of An Expectant Father
Not only is Graham Peterson unlucky in his choice of careers, he’s also been terrible with women throughout his adult life. That changes when he meets Alison on a work night out. Unfortunately for Graham, however, things change so drastically that within a month of dating Alison he gets the news that he’s about to become a father for the first time.

This book charts the months leading up to what should be the happiest day of a young couple's life, but with a relationship so new and a career so bad, can Graham keep everything together for the sake of his unborn child?

With all the pitfalls and worries of an expectant father charted, this book is for all those who have been through pregnancy or just want to know how a man deals with all these things internally.

The Diary Of A Hapless Father: Months 0-3

The second in the series charts those first three terrifying months of parenthood. With all the angst and fear of a new father, Graham needs to pull his socks up if he's going to become the father he always dreamed he would be. 

With all the pitfalls and worries of a new father charted, this book is for all those who have been through early parenthood or just want to know how a man deals with all those things internally.




Hey! Here's my review.

I went into these books expecting a comedy about a man making a mess of things. There were a few laughs, but it was actually much deeper than that. Graham is a great guy and did a fantastic job of navigating the first year of becoming a father.

The first book is the journey from finding out his girlfriend of a few weeks is pregnant to the birth. The second book is the first 3 months with a newborn baby. The books are written in diary entry style and I enjoyed seeing Graham's inner thoughts. I liked Graham and Alison, I could relate to the sleepless nights of early parenthood. 

I listened to the audiobook edition which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator was well suited to this book. He spoke clearly and at a good pace.
