Format: Paperback
I haven't come across a book on herbs yet that contains such concise, well organized, and detailed information. This is more than an encyclopedia, it is an essential how-to manual for any aspiring herbalist. For the seasoned veteran, it is still a worthy reference which combines traditional knowledge, like old names and special herbal terminology, with modern and up to date information, such as chemical constituents. While I personally think plant synergy is more important than the notion of "key medical ingredients", I appreciate that this book puts those facts forward and gives the reader the option of knowing.

Obviously this book cannot be a complete compendium, given its size, efficiency, and the fact that the world of herbs is incredibly diverse. Bartrum does, however, list many of the more well known herbs in western herbalism. My favorite part about it is that it not only includes medical information on the herbs, but also how to use them, such as in tinctures, salves, oils, etc., as well as recommended dosages according to the national herbalist institute in Britain.

I cannot fault this book whatsoever!

An amazing amount of knowledge/experience not available everywhere May 24 2014

An amazing amount of knowledge/experience not available everywhere.
I have the "hard-edition" which was quite expensive but worth every penny.
Just a a curiosity: at the cover page [last page] one sees a picture of the writer,holding a heavy book in his "prehistoric picture" in our time of Androids.
The book brings not just the common simple problems but also mentions problems hardly found in any other book/
If all the advised treatments will be effective only one's own experience will teach, but it is worth having the book, I would think

Incomplete and dated June 1 2014
By Drew K - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This guide lists incomplete information in places and also often references no scientific study. Example, for calendula, it says to use the petals of the plant where the highest concentration of medicine is now known to be in the stem. Better information can be had online such as through [...] . I would not say this book has misinformation, and could have some use, but would not recommend.

A holistic approach in a form that is pragmatic and informative. It is a reference that guides the paractitoner to continue to consider various alternatives for a condition. The number of relevant conditions similarly, makes this a quick reference marker for approriate prescriptions. I refer to it for confirmation and confidence daily.
