I loved her other book, but this one was too ungainly for me. The layout was terrible. There are text boxes everywhere. There are highlighted pages everywhere. All these emphasized areas breaks up the body of the chapters and makes them difficult to read. I also didn't like the way this book was organized as much as the last one of hers I read. This one was organized conceptually (e.g., longevity), rather than organized around the particular herbs being used. I can understand wanting to do that with this book, since most of the recipes involve multiple herbs, so classifying it under one herb would be difficult. Everything about this book was so busy and complicated that it made me less interested in trying the remedies than I was when I read her other book. This book is an amazing asset to any household - from beginners to experienced herbalists. As a mother, I take very seriously my responsibilty to tend to the health and wellness of my family. I got this book when I was just beginning to learn about herbs and natural health. At first, all of the recipes look a little daunting. But if you just slow down and pick a few to try based on your individual needs, you will see how easy they are to use/make and will gain confidence to try others. With the vast availability of quality organic herbs on the internet these days, your ingredients can be delivered to your door if they cannot be found locally. My favorite recipe in the book is the elderberry syrup. I had previously paid $11.49 per 8oz bottle from a trusted supplement company. Now, I make 32oz of the syrup for $5.48. She includes several recipes suitable for children and has dosage instructions making administering them foolproof. They really work too! I LOVE this book and will pass it on to my daughter when she has a family of her own.
