Dr. Jack Newman is, hands down, the best, most informed and practical voice in breastfeeding today. If you are planning to breastfeed or know any pregnant woman who is planning to breastfeed, you've GOT to get this book. The more information you (or she) have, the more likely you are to be successful. I give it to my pregnant friends as often as I can.
