I could take some utility of it and the information is accurate.
It's just a very basic read👎🏿
With 2010, the series plummeted in value. That I believe was NOT the fault of the authors : I believe either the editors, or the editors acting on the publisher's behest, insisted on a terribly simplified text, which they tried to disguise by enlarging the print. (To the point that I did not need to wear reading glasses to read it, as I had with the earlier books (I'm 53).) I would say that the reading level of the first nine volumes was at at least 10th grade level, possibly higher. In 2010, I would say the language level was at no more than 8th grade, and possibly as low as 6th grade.
Fortunately, after the disastrous 2010 book, the series slowly began to improve again (buyer's backlash-??? I'd love to know!) and by 2015 , the series had recovered much of its former value (and reading level) . In my opinion, this value lies mainly in the areas of herb growing, usage, and the background of the herb's use in history and in folklore, plus the recipes.
One thing I noticed : In an early book, the author of the introduction calls out by name the legislation meant to bring herbal remedies under federal government control, and states that this seems to have been done mostly to protect the pharmaceutical industry's profits, rather than for 'consumer safety', as was the rationale . This section of the introduction was excised from the next book : And soon thereafter, all the books were published with a disclaimer, stating that all the recipes were meant only for "historical reference" and "teaching purposes only". Reading these books from first to most recent shows how much the USA has changed since 2000...And not really for the better...
