Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Originally published as The Honest Herbal in 1982, Tyler's Honest Herbal is still the classic herbal guide for consumers and health practitioners alike, fully referenced with the latest peer-reviewed scientific data. As in previous editions, great emphasis is placed on safety concerns when taking herbs. Tyler's Herbs of Choice, a new edition of the 1994 Herbs of Choice, discusses the therapeutic application of herbal remedies for over 100 health problems. Objective and scientifically sound, it augments Tyler's Honest Herbal, although the titles do not need to be bought together. An added bonus is the useful chapter on "Herbal Regulations," as reliable and understandable information on this topic is hard to find. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Finally, a book that evaluates herbals from a scientific perspective rather than relying on folklore! This pithy, well-written and handy book addresses some of the most common herbs and their traditional uses compared to their actual preventative, palliative and curative uses based on research. It also includes a handy, to-the-point chart in the back summarizing the rest of the book if you don't have time for all the details. Sweet!
