From Library Journal:

Savage, Beverly & Diana Simkin. Preparation for Birth: the completeguide to the Lamaze method. Ballantine. 1987. c.384p. photogs. by Mary M. Kennedy. illus. by Mary Motley. index. LC 85-90884. ISBN 0-345-31230-9. pap. $10.95. med These two guides advocate different methods of reaching the same goalnatural childbirth. Jones discusses the use of mental imagery to reduce the fear and tension which make childbirth more difficult. He includes "imagery exercises" designed to help women at each stage of their labor. Jones downplays the role of the commonly accepted Lamaze method and displays skepticism about conventional medical practice. His new technique sounds good but is not yet time-tested. The book by Savage and Simkin is an excellent, comprehensive guide to the Lamaze method. While strongly advocating natural childbirth, this book is aimed at a wide audience. Even those who opt for or require medical intervention will benefit from it. "Birth reports" and quotes from hundreds of parents depict a wide range of experiences. Among the topics covered are Lamaze breathing techniques, the physical process of labor, choosing a doctor or midwife, exercise and relaxation, medication, the role of the partner, postpartum, and the second baby. Preparation for Birth is an essential guide and should be in all public libraries. Jones's book is recommended as a supplement for those committed to a natural birth.
