Reading: Chris Kornelis

Chris didn't know the first thing about pregnancy when his wife gave him the big news. Navigating the world as a father-to-be, amid the pressure to do everything "right," he realized that conventional wisdom and parenting experts don't always provide the best advice. "Rocking Fatherhood" provides a week-by-week guide to pregnancy and encourages new dads to take advantage of the twenty-first century opportunities for creative fatherhood roles that were unavailable to previous generations.

This compelling guide covers everything from swaddling to sex. With wisdom gained through extensive reporting, personal experience, and advice from dads such as James Dyson (the vacuum guy), Julian Casablancas (The Strokes), Aaron Franklin (the BBQ king), and a foreword by Duff McKagan (Guns N'Roses).

Chris Kornelis is a regular contributor to The Wall Street Journal, and has written for several publications, including a popular piece for the Atlantic called, "A Father's Case Against Breast-Feeding."
