More About the Author

Penny Stanway is a writer, doctor, artist and cook.

She worked as a doctor in general practice, then in child health. After having her first baby, she realized the usual advice to breastfeed every 4 hours for 10 minutes a side didn't work for her. Research revealed that this advice was based on schedules for bottle-feeding, took no account of how a woman's body works, and meant most women couldn't breastfeed successfully. Her passion to share and explain well-founded, up-to-date information led to her first book, 'Breast is Best' (US - 'The Breastfeeding Bible'). This much-loved guide aims to enable women to breastfeed for as long as they want and is now in its 6th edition

Penny's 27 subsequent books, many on women's health, baby-care and child health, have continued to empower others.

Her 8 most recent books are about 'miracle foods' such as garlic, olive oil, spices and teas. They include 'The Miracle of Honey'.

Penny has also written:
* 'Free Your Inner Artist', on encouraging creativity - and including an account of her feelings and other responses to 3 years of art classes.
* 'Christmas - a Cook's Tour', with Ingeborg Relph, about Christmas food around the world.


Amazon reviews of any of Penny's books are most welcome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Olives for Health and Beauty 15 May 2012
By Valerie B. Lull - Published on
Dr. Stanway writes a concise volume on the virtues of olive oil. There is a lot of information about the benefits of olive oil and many practical tips for it's use. Included is information on how the olives are grown and processed and lists of the nutritional properties of olive oil.

There is a section listing various ailments and the proper olive oil remedy and a section of beauty tips. Stanway includes a section on how to choose and use olive oil and I was amazed at the amount of adulteration of the product that goes on in the industry.

She also talks about storage and preservation of olive oil and how easily it can go rancid. For example, choosing olive oil sold in dark bottles, as light causes it to lose it's potency. Included is a section of recipes for everything from salad dressing to olive bread. Being a lover and user of olive oil myself I found the book very useful and informative and I liked the recipes.
