This is the best book on herbalism I have ever seen. It is for the novice as well as advanced practictioners. The author classifies most if not all herbs under various healing properties such as blood cleansers, germ killers, etc. This is very helpful. He also gives a balanced diet one should follow to maintain excellent health. The book is logical, well written and in depth. A masterpiece.

Was not impressed... However, it might be useful for those who know nothing about herbs.
