What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Fourth Edition

Heidi Murkoff, Author, Sharon Mazel, Author, Charles J. Lockwood, Foreword by . Workman $14.95 (614p) ISBN 978-0-7611-4857-9

Murkoff is back with yet another edition of the indispensable What to Expect When You’re Expecting —this time with a largely rewritten and revised edition of the comprehensive guide she introduced 24 years ago. The book has undergone an extensive overhaul, beginning with the cover, which depicts a stylish expectant mom dressed in jeans and a form-fitting shirt—a far cry from the original text’s comfy, frumpy mom seated in a rocking chair. Inside, the author has added a number of new features, including a chapter that draws upon current research to steer parents-to-be to a healthier lifestyle even before conception begins, chapters on healthy eating and giving birth to multiples (a growing trend) and expanded sections on working during pregnancy. While the general layout and appearance of the book will be familiar to readers, Murkoff has successfully broadened and sharpened the material while keeping the overall style and presentation intact.
