The Pregnancy Book is an excellent all-in-one guide to pregnancy from William and Martha Sears, creators of the concept of "attachment parenting." Each of the book's chapters represents a month, and deals with physical and emotional changes, describes the growth of the fetus, and discusses common concerns. The authors also focus on nutrition, exercise, information and support for home births and birthing centers, traveling while pregnant, how to avoid episiotomy, and so on. The approach is gentle, thorough, and includes more information than some month-by-month guides, which makes The Pregnancy Book an excellent choice for pregnant couples.

So, as the three stars say, this book is okay, but I would not buy this book again for myself or for any of my pregnant friends.
I have to add that people who believe that pregnancy is some sort of illness or disability will not enjoy this book. Neither will those who just want to get to a hospital, be hooked up to medicine and "get it over with." This book treats pregnancy as the natural, exciting occasion that it is, one that should in no way hinder you from leading an active, healthy life. It also goes to great lengths to empower women to dispel a lot of myths about "alternative" options (such as using midwives or home births) and urges them to be active, informed and vigilant stakeholders in their own pregnancies.
Also, people into Attachment Parenting might be drawn to this book, as I was. I reckon some of those people are also the types to want to give birth in a birth center or at home. Well, just know that, although AP is not exactly mainstream, the Searses are VERY mainstream in their view of birth. They basically believe the hospital is the best place to give birth, and are against home birth. They continue to perpetuate the myth that home birth is not safe. So, if you are planning or thinking about a home birth, please do not look to this book for any encouragement.
Besides my few complaints, I find this book overall to be very useful and would recommend it.
