I am an OB/GYN from Germany and about to take the IBCLC exam in Berlin. I have found this atlas to be by far the best reading material in preperation for the exam. It has been educational, entertaining and the pictures are great! I absolutely loved reading your book and will recommend it to anyone specializing in this field. Thank you very much for this well researched gem that is based on such immense clinical experience! Best regards from Germany, Henny
At first, I was dreading reading through this book because it's a flip back and forth type of review. It's not bad once you delve into it. Some pictures seem a little old grained, however the CULTURE that appear in the photographs are put together beautifully. I can tell this book was blood, sweat, and tears to publish... and to keep updated! A common critique all readers likely have is: we wish this book were more durable, because by chapter 6, you tend to notice the spiral wearing out and up from the pages. I cannot give thanks to KH and BWC, enough! Thank you for your efforts and all your help. You've put a great piece of lactation education literature together. Thank you for this masterpiece!
The content is great of course, but the cover seems like it will not last long at all and will have the "worn and torn" look in no time. I like the spiral option but the cover needs to be of better quality.
I am an IBCLC and Doctor of Public Health and love that there is a new edition out. It is always great to keep up with the current knowledge.
I bought this new edition just in time to use it to study for my first IBCLC exam. I felt it helped me prepare well, not simply because of the clinical photos but the text descriptions are very well written, making it easy to understand the significance of certain features of the photos as well as the context that surrounds them. I am very glad to have this resource on my bookshelf!
