Well, I didn't read this thing from cover to cover, but since it is a text-book I have used extensively, I believe it counts! I like using Varney to study medical numbers such as Vital Signs information, normal procedure and so on - but for a midwife in training, I didn't get much of the 'hands off' approach of midwifery from Helen. But hey, 4 stars for the facts of normal procedure studies! :)
This is the only textbook I've ever read cover to cover, and it's brilliant! Does not read like a textbook but a way of life (pun intended). I was also fortunate enough to get mine signed, with the words "With all best wishes as you become an awesome midwife!" I heart you, Ms. Varney
