While moms-to-be have abundant resources, dads often feel like rookies in this uncharted territory. That’s why Benjamin Watson wrote “The New Dad’s Playbook.” As a Super Bowl champion and father of five, Watson shares a comprehensive game plan—from pre-season preparation for fatherhood to the Super Bowl of birth and the post-season of bringing the baby home.

This tell-it-like-it-is guide helps dads understand the physical and emotional journey of their wives, offering support for the most critical teammate. From handling the unexpected to navigating work-life balance, Watson’s practical advice transforms men from uncertain players to confident participants in the journey of fatherhood.

Written for “the guy who doesn’t think he’s ready to become a father and, whether he admits it or not, fears the challenges of the unknown” (p. 28), the book does have some stereotypes an assumptions. Nevertheless, with love, care, and a strong hand, The New Dad’s Playbook is a great guide for dads who are ready to face the challenges of the unknown and embrace the joys of fatherhood.
