Breasts

Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History by Florence Williams and narrated by Kate Reading

Reviews

Reading Through Life

There was a wealth of information about puberty, breastfeeding, sexual attraction, and health concerns (including breast cancer) that I’d never known before. And it was all presented in a simple, matter-of-fact, friendly manner. It felt a lot like something Mary Roach would’ve written, but with a little more seriousness and a little bit less tongue-in-cheek humour.

LoveistheCure

Love Is the Cure: On Life, Loss, and the End of AIDS written and narrated by Elton John

Reviews

Reading Through Life

It’s not as much of a comprehensive view of things as I had thought – and hoped – it would be, though. Love is the Cure is an interesting personal statement, and I enjoyed listening to it, but I’m sure there are other books out there that are more interesting, detailed, and useful regarding the topic, and that don’t rely quite so much on “star power” for promotion and interest.

SexandGodatYale

Sex and God at Yale: Porn, Political Correctness, and a Good Education Gone Bad by Nathan Harden and narrated by Scott Aiello
