This is a beautiful book, but there are multiple errors with the photos not matching what they say they are. So many so in fact that I turned to the front of the book to see if I missed some sort of disclaimer or explanation. Mandrake, persimmon, cascara are three examples. Sometimes she will describe a plant, its description and use, and show a plant that might have a similar nickname but is not the one she described. Licorice is an example of this. She described the botanical, glycyrrhiza glabra, and gave its uses, etc., but then showed a picture of a totally different plant that is sold with the nickname of licorice plant, but is not true licorice nor the one she speaks about and calls glycyrrhiza glabra. These errors are all over in the book. This type of error concerns me because if she doesn't know what the plant looks like is she even familiar with the plants at all? And where is she getting the info on what the plant is good for? I kept getting the feeling she had no idea about plants, and just googled some picture to accompany her suggested uses for a plant. It worries me, that since I don't know about the magical uses, she might be off there as well and I'd have no idea. When I can identify errors on things I am sure of, I am doubtful to trust an author on things I am not sure of. She is also more willing than most herbal books to state an herb safe for internal use. Mugwort for example is usually listed as not safe for internal use. People can make their own choices as to the safety of an herb, but she should at least alert people that many authorities feel the herbs she says are safe are instead somewhat dangerous. A pretty book, but of dubious reliability.
