@busstop101, I see where you are coming from! At the same time, if anyone thinks that "childbirth without fear" = "childbirth without pain", then this cover should shake loose that supposition. I just put it on hold; I'll add opinion on the content soon.

There are many pain-free birthing books that build from the principles laid down here. The general idea is to fully understand the birthing process in order to be relaxed and prepared to work with your body. This is foundational knowledge that I paired with the Hynobirthing method to maximize results. I highly recommend these together.

@busstop101 - I agree. It doesn't really make you think, "childbirth without fear". It's very misleading. At least it isn't the typical hospital birth with everyone wearing sterile outfits and it is a good book.

This is the worst cover for a book ever. Just looking at it terrifies me.
