The Everything Birthing book

Not that I will ever have kids, I have decided LONG ago that I am an inny not an outy... Okay, now that you know my deepest female thingies I shall continue..

I purchased this book as a gift, and couldn't help crack the cover. This book says that it will inform you of the various options available to you for child birth so you can be informed. The book is hefty in its page count, over 300 pages, and even though the information is informative, it repeats itself, I am not sure why the author does this. However, if you removed all of the repeated information, then you would be able to shave off at least a hundred pages.

Editing is semi problematic, in my copy the use of their and there, and the use of then and than are sometimes crossed. This to me is a basis English issue and one that should have been caught. The book is laid out in a common sense manner, and I admit if I was preggo, I would find the information inside helpful.

So the book has some editing issues. Yes...
So the book repeats itself. Yes...

Can I honestly recommend it? Yes... There is a ton of information in here, and I can as a reader and yes reviewer get over some of the more problematic issues. However even though I think the book is "good" I cannot give it any higher than...
