Book/Article Recommendations for Husband/Birth Partner

I am planning a home birth with a CPM (actually, two, since my MIL will be there & she is licensed in another state). My husband will be there to support me, but this is our first baby so we are both noobs and we don't know what we're doing! I'm doing my own research & such, but he has less spare time because he's working more.

Is there a good (but short!) book or some online articles y'all could recommend for him to get the basics of what will happen & what he can do to support me through labor?

My midwife will have one or two assistants & my MIL will be there as well. Do you think there will be enough people to help and/or give him instructions, or should I force him to read a bunch of stuff to prepare?

Thanks!
