Format: Paperback
With so many herbals on offer for the newcomer, this was the one I settled on after a little consultation. It is scholarly enough to take you deeper but well written enough to keep interest. I particularly appreciate the chapters treating individual systems in the body and the useful glossaries and indexes that made it easy to learn the actual chemical properties of plants and their various effects. This makes for a more informed approach to the plants than "this one is reputedly helpful for that ailment". I use this book all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for herbalists 2 July 2002
By Basbenee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought an earlier version of this book probably 10 years ago and have found it to be indispensible. I, however, did want a better updated version (newer herbs gleaned from research, etc) so I bought this latest edition. I am very pleased with the book, as it offers advice on preparation, harvesting, keeping all systems of the body healthy, just like the old book. It does have some improvements, though, too. This book is in color throughout, and beautifully laid out. Each herbal entry has a photo either of the plant itself or of the root. The information is very well laid out for each entry, noting each herb's properties, uses, harvesting tips, and so on. The only real quirk that bothered me at first, was that the herbs were not listed by common name, but rather by botanical name. But in the long run I'm growing to like this, as it's forcing me to better learn the Latin names, and I think it's a good safety feature, too, since the Latin name is really the only accurate one, with all the varied names gleaned from folklore, etc. Ultimately it makes finding the right plant easier and makes it safer since you're less likely to make an error in finding the right herb for a particular ailment or condition.
