Wanted: Care Guides for the Newly Human

Book-filter: My husband and I are expecting our first child in early May. He would like a book on parenting, especially along the everything-you-need-to-know-about-infants perspective, as he has never really been exposed to babies.

All of the books geared toward dads specifically seem to be quite dumbed-down, so I'd like to avoid those less content, more big font books, but aside from that, I need suggestions as to the best reading for first time parents/fathers. It doesn't have to be something we can read together (although that's great), but does need to have the practical/intellectual aspect. He's also interested in psychology, so development books might be really interesting for him. Bonus points if the book makes a good gift!
