really liked it

I read this in preparation to assist in my sister's labor- and since I saw it next to Amanda's "to-read" pile, and since I know several women who are excepecting this year, I thought I'd throw out a recommendation. It is geared toward husbands and "labor companions" like myself. It focuses a lot on natural childbirth but is useful no matter what. It goes into the complications that can occur, types of massages you can give, etc. and I felt a lot more confident having read it.
