Is there a good source to neutrally explain various baby sleeping options?

I'm pregnant with our first child, due in May. (Happy ending: this was me
It's early yet -- 10+ weeks -- but due to pre-existing health complications, I've already had two ultrasounds. So maybe it's just barely time to start thinking that in about 7 months there will be a screaming poop machine in the house!
The question: are there any good OVERVIEW books about sleeping arrangements? It all seems so fraught and controversial. I just want a decent, and decently detailed, presentation of the options. If it matters, I think full-on co-sleeping is almost certainly out. The real issue is starting with a crib in our room and moving it to a room down the hall in 4-6 months, vs. starting out with the crib in a separate room. Your own answers welcomed, as well as book or website suggestions.
I know there are a million baby questions on Ask, including a million baby-sleep questions, and I've read a lot of them. But none seem to address my question.
