Dr. Baliey explains well our existing knowledge of the remedies and broadens our understanding of them, providing numerous highly original observations. His descriptions of the psychogenesis and psychodynamics of the remedies is engrossing."
- George Guess, M.D., DHt

Format: Paperback
Because my husband is a Homeopath, I came across this book and couldn't put it down. It really shows the different constitutional types, in the thinking and feeling processes. It's farely easy to find your own through reading the book, and shows how much of how we act in in our typing. I really enjoyed this information, and shared it with friends who also found great value in it. In the book "The Complete Guide to Homeopathy", there is a good test for quickly finding out your consitutional type also. Its a good combination book to go with this book. Thanks :-)

This book is primarily intended for the trained homeopath, not the layperson. It is an in-depth look at the more common homeopathic constitutional types. That being said, it's a fabulous book, filled with excellent information that the author gleaned from years of work as a homepath.
Bailey provides detailed information on 35 major types, giving insight on diagnosis, mental and emotional traits, and physical characteristics. This book should really only be used by a trained and certified homeopath, but it does provide fascinating reading for us laypersons. Great book!

As a patient of a classical homeopath, I've found this book to be invaluable. As I move through the different constitional remedies in my healing process, I refer to the book often for a greater understanding of my process and the complexity of this type of healing. A must have for homeopathic patients!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for info on a constitutional remedy and stumbled upon an online preview of this book. As 'luck' would have it, the preview had the chapter on the needed remedy in its entirety (though most other chapters were missing from the preview). I got what I needed, so I didn't really need the book anymore, but I was SO impressed that I ordered it anyway!

I agree with the other reviewers - this book is hard to put down! I have nearly finished the whole book, even though most of the remedies did not apply to anyone I know. It is exceedingly well-written and details the subtle differences between the remedies. I especially liked how he mentioned other remedies in each chapter, further clarifying the differences between several remedies which might confuse the practitioner at first glance.

I am absolutely blown away by this book! I'm not a practitioner, so I cannot comment on the accuracy of the info from a clinical perspective, but I can say that his descriptions were uncannily accurate, on the several remedies that matched my loved ones. I have a keen, personal interest in Homeopathy, and have read only a few books on constitional remedies, but so far, this blows them all away! By far the most in-depth Homeopathy book I've ever read!

I was also impressed with the author's knowledge of and correlations with mythological archetypes, which proved very useful.

If I may be so bold, I would venture to say that practitioners would find much of value in this book, even if they disagree with some of the author's observations.

Format: Paperback
A brilliant book! Every pupil should be given their own copy as a Rite of Passage at around 14 years of age and have to study one or two "types" per week such that the whole book would be covered in a year, and then this should be done every year whilst still at school. They don't have to learn anything about Homeopathy per se, only about people, and in so doing would develop more compassion and understanding of both themselves and others. This would beat any grounding in some of the modern subjects attempting to teach ethics/social behaviour/civics; half an hour a week in the curriculum and a couple of hours reading for a better balanced society! And it would be fun. The teenage pupils would realise that what's going on in their own minds is normal and would be able to understand their peers and elders far better for knowing what makes them tick! But this would probably be too threatening, especially for bureaucratic elders in politics and teaching, and here I'm thinking especially of kali-carbs amongst others! It would also teach the consequences of different behaviours, particularly of bad parenting and expose some dubious management practices for the perverted strategies they really are!
This book is extremely well written and accessible to everyone, while still being of enormous help to the professional. The standard repertories are great for the material body, but now we are entering a different age and there is a dire need for the mental and emotional sides of man to be categorised, understood and, where necessary, healed. Catherine Coulter helped significantly to illuminate the path with her outstanding "Portraits of Homoeopathic Medicines" which I wouldn't be without, Whitmont has written some very interesting books, now I have another brilliant, practical perspective.

Format: Paperback
This is a most interesting book that combines psychology with homeopathy. Philip Bailey describes indepth the personality profiles of some 35 polychrests. The last pages of the book cover a mix of psychological astrology and homeopathy when Philip Bailey explores the elements and some polychrests. This book is abolutely basic reading, together with the books by Catherine R. Coulter (that I still find better). You will be astonished how much can be said about 1 remedy.
