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!

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 library..........an "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
