When David Jacobsen found out that his wife, Christine, was pregnant, he discovered that he had no idea what to think or feel. Not only that, he had no idea what he was supposed to think or feel, and no idea what other fathers-to-be might be thinking or feeling. What to do? In David's case, the only answer was to start reading and writing. Either that or ignore the whole thing - a choice that became increasingly difficult as his wife's belly became increasingly swollen.

Rookie Dad is the story of a young husband and father trying to pay attention to his family's changing size and shape. A story written by a man. A story that offers a glimpse into what it means to be a dad in the new millennium. A story that is honest, asks important questions, and isn't afraid of not having all the answers.
- Publisher.

When I found out my wife, Christine, was pregnant, I had no idea what I was thinking or feeling, and no clue what I should be thinking or feeling. Christine had daily heart-to-hearts with her girlfriends and a stack of parenting books by her bed. I had lots of questions with no answers. So I started writing. It was either that, or try to ignore the whole thing ? a choice that became increasingly difficult as Christine's belly became increasingly swollen. Rookie Dad is the story of a young husband and father learning how to pay attention to his family's changing size and shape. It's a story filled with hard questions, with laughter and tears, and with the unexpected joy of first-time fatherhood. It's my story ? the story of how I became a dad.
