I bought the Mayo Clinic book and find it well organized and informative, and I feel more at ease about pregnancy in general when reading the book. I truly am enjoying that book and would definitely recommend it. In particular, they discuss what you need to think about when traveling which I found helpful when my husband and I were planning our "babymoon". I'm not sure if What to Expect did this also, I didn't get far enough, so I can't compare regarding this section.
My husband really LOVES this book, and he says it has been very helpful for understanding all the changes (and challenges) that I'm going through. He also loves to to learn week by week how our baby is growing and what to expect for that week. Absolutely recommended for all the moms and dads to be!!!

Each chapter is quite long and detailed, which is both good and bad, I personally don't think that it's very reader friendly. It feels more like an instruction manual. I personally prefer the "how to grow a baby and push it out" book. it's much easier to read and contains the same information.
On the down side, it was quite wordy - the author takes the time to state everything in an overly fluffy way, every paragraph has a preamble, most of which contains a pun. As a slow reader, this got exhausting for me. If there was a condensed version available, I would have preferred it.
