Who does Chris make it out to?

I was so freaked out about having our first child that I bought a bunch of fatherhood books and read them in between dealing with my pregnant wife. Granted there wasn't a lot of time between getting the nursery just right for my wife, er... I mean the baby and going out for chocolate cake late at night, but I made the most of it. This thing is, NONE of those fatherhood books helped me whatsoever. I realized there wasn't a book addressing how guys really feel about having children and their anxieties and fears. Will I ever go out again? Will I ever have sex with my wife again? Should I buy stock in Disney? Is my life truly over? I mean, it's not like we guys talk to each other about this stuff. If we did, well, then we would be women, wouldn't we?
 
So I wrote a book for the freaked out new Dad to help navigate the coming baby-shaped storm and maybe even have a laugh or two along the way. Next to valium, it's the best medicine, right? But I also wanted it to be useful, and contain the things I wish I had known at the time. So my book contains helpful advice, anecdotes, and lots of science fiction references. Is Dr. Spock really like Mr. Spock? You'll see.
