The book is scholarly and enlightening. For instance, the history of the brassiere is detailed and concise; it breaks away from the urban myths and other nonsense pertaining to the invention of this device and presents and erudite account of the bra, from its early inception as a chest compression device to its current post-feminist status. The book contains a section of chapter notes describing the source material and additional readings, and it has a good index. The book is written with grace and humor and leaves the reader well informed, if not enlightened.
