Great knowledge of herbs. I only read few pages and already found out lot of interesting things - which I didn't know despite of my interest in herbal remedies. It gives a little bit of history first (enough to enlighten the reader but not bore) and then it has a form of encyclopedia, what makes it easy to find the herb's description. It has index on the end so you can also search illness first. One of those old books full of knowledge so interesting but forgotten by us. Definite "must-be" in every herbalist's library.

This is ok - it is exactly what it says - it is my fault for not thinking about seeing the herbs in colour - all the drawings are black and white and it makes it very difficult to distinguish some of the plants.

I am somewhat dissapointed in this book, going by the reviews I expected better,might possibly be more suitable to someone with zero knowledge on the subject, limited information and also somewhat dated,had I saw it in a bookshop I wouldn't have bought it ,there are a lot of more detailed and informative books available,id recommend one of those.

Interesting book as the author writes on the research undertaken on each listed herb so you get a more in depth picture of the herb's healing properties and possibilities

well written book would recommend this if you are into alternative medicine very informative most of the lotions and potions in the book are of common plants grown in the countryside and in the garden
