Format: Paperback
Bloom, by Stefan Ball, is a specialist interest book that will strongly appeal to anyone who has used Bach Flower Remedies (BFRs). However, unlike another reviewer of this book, Lee Ann, I think this book could also appeal if you have never used the remedies but are interested in personal development and spiritual growth. If, as Stefan says, `you spend more time as a human doing and less time as a human being', then this book is for you!
This is not another self-help workbook; it is an engaging, interesting and challenging read. Even if you were only to read a few pages, you would recognise yourself, or someone you know, and become intrigued as to how a flower essence could help. This is a book for today, yet its wisdom makes it timeless.
Stefan provides a brief history of the discovery of the remedies, explains how each of the 38 BFRs can be used for self-development and spiritual growth, and describes how to self-administer the treatment.
The book is structured so that the chapters about theories of self-development alternate with chapters that explain the possible uses of the remedies. If you are familiar with the BFRs you can read just the chapters that explain the principles of self-development; if you already know about self-development you can just read the chapters about the remedies. My tip: for maximum benefit, read the book straight through.
I would urge that this book be recommended as a standard text for Bach Flower Remedy Practitioners: it is a valuable resource both personally and with clients. Its balanced, common sense approach to dealing with fear, change and relationships gently leads readers to identify obstacles and uncover their own solutions. Finally, the testimonials of how remedies have benefited individuals provide insight into remedy use that is rarely available outside a training course.

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By LeeAnn Day VINE VOICE on 25 April 2007
Format: Paperback
Stefan Ball is one of the Trustees at the Bach Centre at Mount Vernon, home of Dr Bach and where the Nelson Bach remedies are still created according to his exact standards. Stefan writes the course material for practitioners and marks the exam results. He has a good grounding in teaching and is an expert and talented teacher.

This book is not for the beginner. If you are interested in Dr Bach and his system of remedies used to treat our emotions rather than the symptoms of disease then you should firstly read Judy Howard's Step by Step guide, Stefan's Workbook and his Teach Yourself.

But this is fantastic book for those who want to learn more and put their knowledge to deeper use and I recommend you buy it once you have grapsed the general philosophy nad remdy knowledge.

As in his previous books this is very easy to understand, full of information and fun to read.

Highly recommended for those with some knowledge and experience.

I enjoyed reading this book. The background about Edward Bach was useful because it sets a clear context for the information about the individual flower remedies. I like the way the book is structured. It seems a good introduction to the remedies, but also provides lots of detail about human emotions. The content and writing in itself seems to encourage the reader towards personal growth and a positive attitude.

A unique treatment of the Bach Flower system 17 Mar. 2006
By Brant Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Stefan Ball, of the Dr. Edward Bach Centre and Bach Foundation has come up with a unique approach to understanding and using the Bach Flower Remedies with this book, one that looks beyond the descriptions of what the individual flowers do and how to choose and use them (scores of books are available that do this already, some with him as author, no less). The focus here, as one can gather from the subtitle, is on personal and spiritual development and growth. I am not usually one who even considers reading so-called "self-help" books, but since I am heavily involved with the Bach system, including training to become a practitioner, I already had an interest in that part of the subject. This book does cover in detail, in chapters alternating with more philosophical ones, what each of the 38 Bach Flower Remedies do, but even here, there are more in-depth descriptions and different ways of looking at the Remedies, using many thoughtful examples (some from the author's own life experiences), than usually appear in these books. Every other chapter covers topics such as intuition, peak experiences, simplicity and finding one's life purpose not only as they relate to using the Bach system, but also how they have been discussed throughout history by philosphers, authors and scientists. This sounds like it could get rather heavy pretty quickly, but Ball keeps the tone light and the style of writing almost conversational so that the book is very easy and quick to read while conveying a wealth of useful information that makes you think about your own life. For someone already using the Bach Flowers, Bloom offers fascinating, fresh insight into using them for a deeper purpose, beyond, say, "merely" taking them for relieving depression. For someone new to Bach Flowers, it provides a wonderful starting point, complete with all the basic information as well as an underlying theme that can be tapped into when the time is right. Seventy years on, Bach Flowers continue to help people change their own lives. Bloom brings forward this message in a comfortable, inspiring fashion which is destined to make it a classic.
