This book is easy to read and very informative.
InfoMom
Really, there's nothing really that bad about "Everything you need to know..." but there are just other books that do the same thing FAR better.
A. Violas
I highly recommend this book to anyone expecting twins!

I bought several books on twins. This one was not worth the extra money, as I could have EASILY gotten the exact same information from two other books that covered ALL the topics included in this book, but which were written in a more accessible and positive way. The first was: When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads, Revised Edition by Barbara Luke When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads, Revised Edition: Proven Guidelines for a Healthy Multiple Pregnancy and Twinspiration: Real-Life Advice From Pregnancy Through the First Year by Cheryl Lage. Twinspiration: Real-Life Advice From Pregnancy Through the First Year (for Parents of Twins and Multiples). I would also recommend "What to expect when you're expecting" What to Expect When You're Expecting: 4th Edition. That book has a great readability and pretty comprehensive information overall about pregnancy in general.

I would say between these four books, the book by Dr. Leiter (everything you need to know to have a healthy...) is beyond redundant information. The thing I disliked most about Dr. Leiter's book was that it was so sterile and medically based that it came off very negative. All the books had the same information about possible complications and so on, but her presentation made it seem like pregnancy was going to be all gloom and doom with nothing but hurdles to jump and that hoping to have a normal healthy pregnancy was really unrealistic.

This book talked to you like a friend -- who just happens to be an MD and a mother herself. She answers all your questions in a comfortable, easy to read way. Even if you are not having a twin, but are becoming a parent for the first, second, or third time this is a book to turn to.

This book is phenomenal! The author is an ob/gyn and a mother of twins herself! There's not a single question a woman pregnant with twins could have that isn't answered by this great book.

I expected more from this book. I didn't really learn anything new from it. Most of us know that a twin pregnancy is higher risk than a singleton pregnancy. I wish it had gone over specifically how much weight you should gain in the first trimester, what to do for back-pain that inevitably will come later on, some advice for preparing for childbirth, etc.

Format: Paperback
I have read this book, and felt it was a very informative book telling you all 'as it is'! It went through many different issues of things that can go wrong, which is very important, so that if something does go wrong, you can be aware of it, and speak to your doctor about it, before its too late!! It also went through the foods and vitamins that is necessary to eat as a pregnant mom of multiples. It divided the book with trimesters, which made it very easy to look up anything, you have a question about during the pregancy. It made me very comfortable knowing that a doctor herself wrote the book, (and someone who had twins herself- so she 'really' knew all the ins and outs) and that it was not just written by some journalist or someone. It was easy reading and very educational. I felt it was very similar to another book I've read called "Twins, Expert Advice from two Practicing Physicians on Pregnancy and the First Year", by Connie Agnew. The reason it got 4 stars instead of 5 was because certain times, I felt that the author jumbled around and wrote things in 2-3 different places, where I would have preferred to read about that specific thing, all in one place, but otherwise, its a great book for anyone expecting multiples to read!

After the initial shock that we would have not one, but two babies, this book became my best friend. It gave me tons of practical information on types of twinning and what to expect during my pregnancy. In fact, my doctor was even impressed at the specific questions I was able to ask based on the knowledge from this book.
I would highly recommend the book to anyone expecting two or more. It's easy to read and is loaded with useful information.

Format: Paperback
This is one of 5 Twin Pregnancy Books that I read while pregnant with my now 7 month old twin sons. I found some useful information in it, but found "When You're Expecting Twins, Triplets, or Quads" by Dr. Barbara Luke and Tamara Eberlein to be much more informative and helpful. The book I just mentioned is written by a doctor who runs a multiples clinic and a nutritionist that had twins and they know what they are talking about. This book is helpful, but that one was so much more helpful to me. I followed their advice for weight gain, etc. (even though my doctor said that 70 lbs was too much to gain) and had two very healthy boys at 36 weeks that never saw a second in the NICU and weighed in at 5lb 2oz and a whopping 6lb 2oz! Now, you would never know I had twins and gained that much weight. Good book but the other is better:)
