About the Book
Don sets about learning the protocols of becoming a father, but his unusual research style gets him into trouble with the law. Fortunately his best friend Gene is on hand to offer advice: he’s left Claudia and moved in with Don and Rosie.
As Don tries to schedule time for pregnancy research, getting Gene and Claudia back together, servicing the industrial refrigeration unit that occupies half his apartment, helping Dave the Baseball Fan save his business and staying on the right side of Lydia the social worker, he almost misses the biggest problem of all: he might lose Rosie when she needs him most.

To the world’s most perfect woman.’ It was lucky my father was not present. Perfect is an absolute that cannot be modified, like unique or pregnant. My love for Rosie was so powerful that it had caused my brain to make a grammatical error.
I spent a lot of this book being incredibly frustrated. Too many of the issues Don encountered was because the people around him were refusing to accept that someone who was different from them and what they expect people to be like is qualified to be a father. And although this is listed as humorous, I spent more of the book being upset over the injustice.
There's one particular character that I just really want to go through and punch in the nose. They're seriously that awful. And that's just the nicest thing I'd like to do with them.
Much like the last book, many of the mishaps that occur in here are from misunderstandings over bad advice. Or from people expecting Don to act a certain way and then judging him negatively because he doesn't come across the way they want him to.
Although I did enjoy this one, and do recommend it - especially to those who enjoyed the first one - I think it's more of a heavier read than the author lets on.
