CAPERS Bookstore stocks a selection of the Why it Matters book series, which are intended as “Essential evidence-based guides to pregnancy, birth and parenting”. Each book is around 200 pages, so they are a quick read. At the same time, the authors are experienced in the specific field and the books are well-researched and include references. They are an ideal introduction to a specific topic, and a useful refresher too.
These books make a wonderful gift, for example if you are trying to explain to a colleague the impact of the marketing of infant formula you could give them Why the Politics of Breastfeeding Matters and know they would get a clear, concise and authoritative overview of the topic.
