I purchased this booking because I knew nothing about Homeopathy and I was interested in learning some basic information. Well, I was completely disappointed by this publication. It contains little more than a cursory discussion of the topic.
I've read other "Idiot's" books in the past that contained much more detail.
Bottom line, I'll have to keep looking for a better book on Homeopathy.

David Solar's book is wonderful! It gives a great overview of the history of homeopathy, how it works, what the philosophy and goals are, etc.! He does a nice job of dispelling some common misperceptions too. This is a great introduction with important information if you are seriously considering finding a qualified professional to work with you doing homeopathy. Seven years ago my allergies were so severe I could not be outside for more than five minutes the entire month of October. After working with a qualified, amazing woman who prescribed specific remedies for me, the next fall I was literally dancing/playing in the leaves with my toddlers!! I've also discovered that I am deathly allergic to ALL the major groups of antibiotics. Using homeopathy, she has treated me successfully for strep throat and many other ailments. The purpose of homeopathy is to treat the entire person and get your body, mind, and emotions to a place of balance and overall health. Check out this book and homeopathy. You'll be glad you did! P.S. My overall health is in such great balance now and my allergies totally in check - that I got two dogs a year ago - a yellow lab and a golden retriever! :)
