Description

"Exactly what we need--honest, understanding, and inviting words on fatherhood."--Drew Brees, NFL quarterback, New Orleans Saints

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 wives 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.

"If you're a man preparing for your first child, you must read this book. If you already have children, you'll want to read it as you continue to grow your family."--Tony Dungy, bestselling author of Quiet Strength and Uncommon

"Benjamin dives into each aspect of fatherhood that will help husbands connect with the hearts of their wives and prepare for one of the most important callings a man can have. Every new dad and dad-to-be needs this resource!"--Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries
