The authors answer the questions people want to know about breastfeeding, but what makes this little booklet invaluable is that every section is fully referenced.

"Leaders are sometimes asked to give short talks that give an overview of breastfeeding, including relevant statistics such as breastfeeding rates around the world, the cost of breastfeeding versus formula feeding, or the percentage of fat in human milk. This great booklet provides these statistics at your fingertips and includes more fascinating trivia as well."

"Breastfeeding At A Glance is a wonderful compendium of lactation data that could be useful to Leaders when planning speeches, writing letters to the editor, or for use in a Series Meeting (particularly Series Meeting #1). This booklet would also make a good gift for a newly pregnant mother who is considering breastfeeding. The information in the booklet is relevant, accurate, and compelling, and would likely be appreciated most by women who are logical and fact-oriented in their approach to decision-making. With its concise format and brevity, it can be read in about an hour."
