Not worth it
This book really didn't have any information you couldn't really find on pregnancy blogs or websites. It was very dictatorial - "you should" "you must" "you need" - and was mostly just a list of do's and don'ts. Might be useful for a newly pregnant woman who just wants to know basics, but again you can easily find this information online for free.
