Okay, so I didn't technically read this book cover to cover, but 1. that's not how reference books are generally supposed to be read, and 2. I think I've earned the right to count this as "read ... Read full review

We want to start trying for our first baby later this year, my husband has no experience with babies and I've only held a few, so other than the normal things you hear and read in everyday life this whole thing is a mystery to us. For that reason I started scouring lists of the top baby books, and eventually choose this one because it is so comprehensive. I didn't really have any questions cause I simply didn't know much about pregnancy. I read about a quarter of the book page by page to understand what does on and man did I learn a lot!! After that I skimmed the headings and read what sounded like it might apply to me. I still don't have any questions but for a completely different reason. Every question that did pop into my head was answered just as quick, and the fact that its a clinical book backed by medical research makes me feel so safe in what I'm reading. Its easy to read and understand and I'd recommend it to anyone in a similar position, other first time parents and even other family members or friends who may not no much about pregnancy either, i'm sure your pregnant relative/friend would appreciate you understanding them and learning together.

This was the best pregnancy book I found. No cutesy language (like that oh so popular title, What to Expect) and from a very respected medical information source. Read full review

I have not found a better book for pregnancy then this. It gives the facts without trying to scare you like "What to Expect" books do. I suggest it to ever pregnant women I have ever meet. Read full review
