Overview

All women have them and yet, few women truly understand them. Now we have bOObs, A Guide to Your Girls. This is the ultimate guide to breasts. It is estimated that 85% of women in the US wear the wrong bra size and many women expect their breasts to betray them, either with age or through illness.

bOObs takes the mystery out of breast health, awareness, and perception and celebrates the unique individuality of women of all ages, races, and cultures. Each chapter contains web and written resources, plus illustrations and sidebars with entertaining information on little known facts, trivia, and the best breast trends. Filled with personal, true stories (“mammoirs”), readers are given practical and useful advice from breast experts—lingerie fitters, clothing manufacturers, doctors, personal trainers, and others—on what to expect from their breasts and how to put their “best breast forward.”

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

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 Bookand Miriam Stoppard's The Breast Bookmay offer more coverage and the underwire support of white-coat science, Boobsis 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. [For more on breasts, see LJ's annual roundup in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, p. 160.-Ed.]
