Recommends it for: anyone pregnant who is still deciding if they wish to breastfeed
This book would be great as a launching point to learn about breastfeeding, but if you have already done any research on the subject you can skip this book. Kimes quickly outlines the problems you'll likely encounter and provides a few suggestions for how to cope with each she has a very Girlfriends Guide feel to her writing and does not provide any technical detail. It is however a very quick read so if you are debating whether or not to try breastfeeding it might be the book for you.

Good general information but the author is a bit sanctimonious about working while breastfeeding. The pumping chapter is a bit discouraging with comments suggesting that a working mom is somehow going against nature and will morally justify it by thinking of her paycheck. Ugh...

I find Joanne Kimes to be both helpful and engaging Not only does she tackle the basics of breastfeeding, she zeros in on all the specific problems that can arise in trying to get that baby to latch on. To sum it up I'd say you definitely won't be "let down" by this one!
Recommended by a coworker. Down-to-earth advice - I found it mostly just helped reassure me that what I was experiencing wasn't "weird" which is worth something. Not helpful with specific problems, though, and not one that I would own as a reference.

I used to write for TV but when I became pregnant, I didn't want to work the long hours anymore. Besides, once I realized that pregnancy sucks, it gave me the perfect fodder for my first book entitled, "Pregnancy Sucks: What to do When Your Miracle Makes you Miserable". That led to ten other books in the Sucks series, plus my new book, "The Stay-at-Home Martyr".
