Exactly what I was looking for - a bit of important info on tons of topics, and a neat little summary of the best things to do in case you're just that impatient. Kept my interest all the way through. Only thing I didn't like was the perpetuating stereotypes about men and conception/birth, but those tend to be in every conception/pregnancy book I read.
