I just received most welcome news! My first book, THE COMPLETE BOOK OF BREASTFEEDING, was first published in 1972 by Workman Publishing, when breastfeeding rates in this country were at just about the lowest rates ever. I kept revising and updating the book over the years, and Workman brought out the fourth edition in 1999. Yesterday I learned that Workman has just ordered a new printing of the most recent edition. Hooray for moms and babies! And hooray for Workman!
