I've been waiting for this to come out (actually had to order from Birthing From Within because Amazon lost faith that it was ever coming) and it's worth it! This is a valuable resource for mothers, fathers, and doulas, childbirth educators, nurses, doctors, etc. There are lots of great ideas for how to use the labyrinth as a metaphor for labor, birth, and parenting - and clear instructions on how to draw, sculpt, or construct small labyrinths for personal use. There's also a good but not overwhelming amount of background cultural and archeological information. Get it! It's good!
