Fascinating!

This book opened my eyes to whole new world in the realm of nutritional health. The book is very well organized and the information is presented professionally without being overly technical (boring). I'm a beginning explorer in the field of herbalism, but I get the sense that this book scales well from beginner to more advanced levels of understanding in the field. I will be referencing this book for many years to come as I increase my knowledge on this subject.

Always amazed at how simple plants and herbs have been used since the dawn of time. Also how they can be just as powerful or more effective than modern medicine... In some instances.
