This book does an impressive job of exposing every form and function of the only major organ of the body without a medical specialty using scientific information, society norms, personal information and an easy-going sense of humor.

Williams asks important questions: Why are girls developing breasts at a younger age than ever before? What are the toxins in our environment doing to our breasts? How do the hormones in birth control pills affect our breasts? How did humans develop breasts? What is the influence of breasts in our culture? What are the factors affecting breast cancer? How is it that men can get breast cancer?

A worthwhile read for men and women alike.
