Planning a natural childbirth

I had a natural birth with DD and would like to do so again. I will be delivering in the hospital, DH's preference and I didn't want to make any choices that he wasn't comfortable with.

I'm looking for some good books on natural childbirth, I looked into hypnobirthing, but I'm not sure how much that includes DH...this is his first and I want to make sure that he can be involved.

I'm also exploring the Bradley method...any feedback on it?

Whatever we go with, we won't be taking classes, it just won't work with our schedule. Also, this baby will likely be induced as I have a long commute to law school and there is some concern regarding me going into labor on the road. I want to play that one by ear though...I'm only willing to be induced within a week of my EDD (very accurate, we were charting and using CBEFM) and if I'm showing signs of naturally progressing anyway.
