HASH(0x93229114) out of 5 stars Don't buy this edition! 29 Jun. 2014
By Kevin and Elizabeth Lien - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The authors are coming out with a 2016 version. This edition, while beautifully written has a terrible CD attached that has to be opened via a special program- which opened in my system with numerous warnings about security vulnerabilities. The photos on the CD and in the book are mostly outdated and not what I expected for a book that is so pricey. But the authors, who are eloquent writers, present breastfeeding science in a clear and precise way. If you are going to splurge on a book, get the new version of this one.

This is still not fixed. This will not download the text but rather the study guide. Don't be fooled, continue to buy hardback!

HASH(0x92f5f078) out of 5 stars Perfect study guide for the IBCLC Exam! 7 April 2011
By C. Wahowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to study for the IBCLC exam which I am planning on taking this summer. I have gotten through about 5 chapters so far and it has been great. Very clear, informative and interesting to read. It can be technical at times but being an RN with a lot of medical background it hasn't been difficult to follow. If you do not have any prior medical knowledge it might be a little tough to get through. I also purchased the study guide to get the online review which is the same as the book but they keep track of your scores and is much easier then dealing with the study book. Overall a great book for any IBCLC and I am happy to have it be a part of my lactation collection for future reference.

HASH(0x92f494b0) out of 5 stars Must have Breastfeeding text book 17 Jan. 2010
By Beth F. Ricciuti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a requirement for an online graduate course I'm taking this sememster. Amazon sold the book much cheaper than the college bookstore. It arrived in pristine condition earlier than expected. I LOVE this text book. Must have for future lactation consultants or medical folks that want more info on the exciting topic of human lactation.
