Another great one about the American maternity system and all its flaws. There were parts that included lots of statistics and were a little hard to slog through but the author certainly did her research and every number is backed up. If you're looking for the stats to solidify the notion that medical interventions in birth are causing problems, this is your book.
Some fascinating stories included as well...like the midwife who practices in a state where midwifery is illegal so that she can help her clents avoid unwanted (and unnecessary) c-sections.
