When it comes to the uses of herbs it gives a brief overview of what one could possibly do with the herb without giving measurements or instructions for preparation. Some of the herbs listed could be lethal in large doses, which is the only reason this concerned me. It does, however, have an exhaustive list of common garden plants, their latin names, and information related to their growing and the zones they would grow best in. I turn to it frequently for growing information and as a starter on my research for further medicinal properties or preparation.

If you have an interest in herbs this book is a must-have. It lists even the most obsure plants and gives each a very informative overview that includes both the historical and modern uses. -Linda Fry Kenzle, author of Gathering

Best reference book I've ever read. Use this book whenever I see a plant I like and can't identify. Excellent pictorial and historical details. Wonderful tips for gardeners, herbalists and people who just love looking at plants.

I was actually just looking for a book that would give me the names and medicinal properties of all the different Herbs. I was more than pleased to find that this book gives much more. It has cultivating, cooking and medicinal information as well as color photos and much much more. This book has all the information one would want or need.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a definite must have for anyone interested in herbs. "Encyclopedia of Herbs and Their Uses" contains color photos of all entries (or at least all of the ones I have looked up so far), and also lists the different uses of each herb. I thought the layout of the book was very well planned, and I found that the book, in general, was very easy to use. This book meets my needs perfectly.

I bought this book fo information on medical herbalism. This is more of a gardening book, or a coffee table book. It is beautifully printed in the DK tradition of quality books.
