The popular Earl Mindell's Vitamin Bible (Warner, 1989. rev. ed.) has a sequel: the Herb Bible . This handy reference covers more than 100 common and useful herbs, giving preparation and dosage, benefits, and cautions. Mindell, a pharmacist and professor of nutrition, includes some background on the use of medicinal herbs in several cultures, plus chapters on preventative medicine, cosmetic use, and aromatherapy. This is a good, well-rounded introductory work on treating simple ailments. Mindell also includes plenty of cautions, explains what herbal remedies can reasonably be expected to accomplish, and recommends consulting a physician for serious conditions. If you already have a good general work such as Michael Castleman's The Healing Herbs (Rodale Pr., 1991), you might not need Mindell's book. Just don't confuse Mindell's book with John Lust and Michael Tierra's The Natural Remedy Bible (S. & S., 1990)--their focus is very different from the rational herbalism promoted by Mindell.-- Katharine Galloway Garstka, Intergraph Corp., Huntsville, Ala.

I would reccommend this book to anyone who is interested in alternative medicines. This book gives very accurate, detailed descriptions of the uses and benefits of an extremely wide variety of medicinal, culinary, dye, and perfume herbs. This is also the most complete catalog of many (if not almost all) of the herbs and their uses.
