    "This book is a page-turner. Each level has its own chapter, liberally illustrated with lively case histories that show how and why this level is essential to the process as a whole. Questions at the end of each chapter invite further exploration and discussion with colleagues."

    "This book is easy to read, has some visual aids, and a glossary of terms for the reader unfamiliar with breastfeeding terminology. This would be an excellent book for practicing midwives. Midwifery educators could find the approach useful in developing case study-focused lesson plans."
