This is an excellent book written by an experienced and qualified herbalist. It's not just another book about traditional or theoretical uses - the author has incorporated personal anecdotes and her actual experiences of using the herbs. She also includes practical tips on how to harvest and process the plant material. It is interesting equally for folks who have had little contact with the herbal world and also lots of titbits for those with experience. I'm a herbalist myself - I have loads of herb books in my library - I'd definitely recommend this one for anyone who wishes to take responsibility for health back into their own hands.
The world we live in, with so much disinformation from the vested interests of Big Pharma, the disempowering propaganda of the orthodox medical profession, and the spectre of the evil Codex alimentarius looming on the horizon (if you've not heard of this please look into it and act to oppose this NOW - its THE most important piece of legislation affecting our lives right now and its being brought in under the radar by powerful vested interests). This book brings the information we need to take back control of our health safely and without the need to resort to dangerous chemicals.
