★ "A short but powerful, important work. A unique, thoughtful, and evidence-based book perfect for individuals of any age considering binding or for readers interested in understanding the practice more thoroughly."--Booklist, starred review

★ "This is an essential purchase for all secondary and public library collections as it provides health information in a readily accessible manner that is otherwise difficult to find in science-based ­resources."--SLJ, starred review

"Practical, well-researched, and inclusive, this book is a breath of fresh air for readers looking to make informed, destigmatized, health-conscious decisions, and avoid the dangerous binding practices that occur due to an absence of information and surplus of judgment."--BCCB
