4.0 out of 5 stars A Book Well-Worth Reading
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 January 2021
Florence Williams is to be commended for writing a thoroughly readable, well-researched text on the human breast. Breasts is an insightful compendium comprising 14 fascinating chapters recounting from babyhood to aged adulthood everything every woman should know about her own body.

Florence Williams writes of the development of women's breasts from the first gentle flush of adolescence, to the full blown potential for feeding a child. The intricate web of veins and milk ducts is magical, and Williams ensures that the reader can gain a clear and readily comprehendible insight into the way nature programmes human breast construction. Breasts provides valuable insights for women with healthy, well-breasts, for those suffering breast cancer and its aftermath, and for those who are dissatisfied with what nature has endowed them.

Women contemplating surgical enhancement (sic) of their own breast, and those even considering gifting a plastic surgery operation to their daughters as a 16th birthday or graduation present should hesitate - permanently - before doing so. Read Breasts first.
