Loved it! Very informative, user-friendly science-based read, I found it very interesting and useful. Raises the awareness and encourages to rethink our connections with our environment. Great for all women starting with teenagers, especially for 20-30 aged group, but also for older readers. Great chapters on breastfeeding, environmental toxins, cancer risks, modern view of breasts and even implants. Very refreshing and cool book, would make a good present for any woman I think.

I like that the book was a bit edgy while still appealing to the science nerd. I am not well versed in science but was still able to understand a lot of the studies and points made by the author. Worth a read. So true, we live with breasts for so much of our lives but we really know very little about them. Time for some education!

Popular science at its best - this book brings together science and culture and explores how breasts are a bit of a barometer for our environmental issues.
