    Awesome breadth and depth of information! This book contains so much knowledge that I can read page after page, fascinated by the different properties of each herb. It's unquestionably the most comprehensive herbal reference I currently have on the shelf! Others are more specialized, of course, but this one is invaluable for talking about pretty much "all the things." Includes indications, physiological effects, and cautions for herbs - I know it's not *all* the herbal knowledge on the planet, Awesome breadth and depth of information!

I use this all the time and consider it an essential reference.

    All around good intro book for herbs, part of the plants to use, their ailments, classification, and how to apply them to daily routine and life. I like how he says eating a balanced diet is more important than taking any herbal supplements. Very good info on chinese medicine and how to balance yin/yang in foods in the diet whether you eat meat or not. Something missing though was a comparison of chinese and auyervedic.

    I've read this book before but have to read it AGAIN for another course. I think the herb info in it is excellent although the new agey beliefs do not resonate at all with me - and that was just reading through all the intros, prefaces, etc this book has. This book does have very good information - it is one of the books I keep on my desk for easy reference.

    This book was recommended by the woman who taught a three day intensive herbal class that I attended in 2003. I use it often. Very useful if you follow Chinese medicine and need to know about herbs from that perspective.
