Editorial Reviews

Review

"If a protagonist from a Sophie Kinsella novel wanted to learn about mammograms, she'd consult this book while getting her lowlights done. Squires, author of the Books on Boobs web site, discusses the health, sexuality, life stages, and cultural significance of the female breast with a breezy, best-girlfriend approach that might inspire readers to stand tall and throw their shoulders back. Sidebars provide breastcentric slang and factoids, with juicier tidbits dispensed in "Boob Flash!" text boxes. Squires also presents an annotated "boobography" and truly useful guidance on choosing a bra. The inclusion of women's compelling stories almost earns this guide the alternate title of The Breast Monologues. While Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book and Miriam Stoppard's The Breast Book may offer more coverage and the underwire support of white-coat science, Boobs is the sassy push-up that will get the attention of a younger audience who really needs this information. Recommended for all public library health and young adult collections." -- Library Journal

I feel much more comfortable about my own body now. I didn't realize how much of an impact self-esteem is affected by how we feel about our bodies until I read Elisabeth's book and found more confidence within myself from it. Great book to read.

As a breast cancer survivor I thought I knew it all about breasts. Boy, was I wrong! I really wish I had read Elisabeth's book about breast reconstruction before I got my implant. Not that I would change anything, but I would have had such a better understanding about it all. I love the way that she talks about breasts in a matter-of-fact and engaging style. I felt as if we were sitting there having coffee together! Clearly she has done a ton of research but is never dry or boring. I'd buy this book for my daughters (if I had any) or anyone w/breast issues, i.e. dense breasts, an upcoming mammogram, a cancer diagnosis. This book is a treasure.

I love bOObs. The author clearly cares about her readers and fellow boob-owners. This is not an intimidating "perkier than thou" makeover guide, nor a scary "watch out for the time bombs on your chest" cautionary tale, but a lovely, comprehensive, engagingly written book that celebrates the beauty, individuality, functionality, and wonder of women's breasts. I heartily recommend it. (I plan on getting a few copies as gifts for young family members, and wish I'd known all of this back then.)

Every teenage girl should read this book. I don't find this book too informative, but I agree it's a light read and enjoy reading the anecdotes from other women of different sizes and ages. The bra-fitting chapter is useful, I learned new way to measure my girls.

I gave this book to my 16 year-old niece and she and her girlfriends really enjoyed it and learned a lot too. Now they want to have a bra fitting party! Breast health is foremost in this book and it's filled with tips and gossip and trivia that make it fun reading. Great gift.

This book is a great boob overview. It's chock full of information but it's not dry or boring. Elisabeth's playful and sassy approach makes "bOObs" a fun and easy read. She's constantly making boob puns which kept me smiling as I learned some new things about my boobs. One of my favorite things about this boob book is the collection of quotes she's got sprinkled throughout. She interviewed real, everyday, average women and shared their insights and anecdotes. I could relate to so many of them!

Even if you think you already know everything you need to know about boobs, buy this book. I guarantee you'll learn something new and have a good laugh along the way.
