A book with soul,

This review is from: Birth And Beyond: The Definitive Guide to Your Pregnancy, Your Birth, Your Family - From Minus 9 to Plus 9 Months (Hardcover)
Yehudi Gordon's exemplary tome combines enough facts, figures, charts and glossaries to satisfy any medical student. But it is also filled with something infinitely more precious to the prospective parent. It has a truly personal touch.
From chapters on becoming to family, to sections on relationships, communicating, and tools for meditation - this is a wonderful and inspiring read. Going beyond pregnancy, it deals with the learning curve of becoming a parent, your baby's emotions and much more. The book's quietly spiritual dimension lift it beyond the realm of the usual baby books. It certainly surpassed all the (many) other books we invested in when expecting our first child. They seemed basic and boring by comparison.
If you buy one pregnancy and baby book - make it this one. It has all the makings of a classic.
