This review is from: The Book of Herbal Wisdom: Using Plants as Medicine (Paperback)
One of the best and most interesting herb books on the market. Matthew Wood's enthusiasm and knowledge mixed with anecdotal tales of friends and patients, makes this book a compelling read.

I am confused by the three reviews of this book. In each case the style of writing is similar and sounds more like promotion by the publisher. Also, note the use of a comma - that is not in bold - following each of the titles given to the reviews. If these reviews are written by the same person, I don't think it is fair to give the impression to other Amazon customers that this is the top herb book to buy, because of its 5 star rating. As a result, Amazon customers - as well as the authors and publishers of other herb books - will be disadvantaged.

Funny, Rahela, I noticed the same thing and was thinking how rare it is that 3 people would share the same grammar usage, given how varied it is these days....interesting indeed. I also noticed how the last 2 lines of the first review were literally taken word for word from the publisher's review. I'm going to buy the book anyway because I've heard it's good but I agree with you - if it is the publisher then it is very misleading.

I am always wary of any review written by 'A Customer', very often they are so obviously spurious and borderline fraud. Now A Customer esq how about showing your face, or faces?
