I like honesty in a book, so the first sentence in the preface immediately attracted me. It stated that some remedies might be helpful as a placebo only.

The actual remedies were written in 1915. The book starts with extensive dictionary of medicines and terms.

The book is organized in chapters, each one addressing a number of issues. For example, a section on babies consists of more than 500 questions. The answers are written in plain language, useful and to the point. The section on herbs provides a description of common roots and plants, with recommendations when to collect them, and how to use them. Unfortunately, the illustrations are not part of the Kindle publication.

In addition to mother's remedies some sections have Physician's treatment section.

The book is nicely organized with an index, so you can find topics by either by decease or by remedy.

I found this book to be an interesting read. Both to see how things change and what remained the same. My great grandfather was a doctor at that time frame so the reference had a special meaning to me, trying to imagine his life.

This is an interesting book that was copyrighted in 1910. I mention this because you should not consider the contents as valid medical advice. Instead, it should be appreciated as a historical work that provides some true insight into the concerns of parents, and the understanding of medicine at the date of publishing, nearly a century ago.

As for this version, I must say that I was disappointed that the illustrations were missing. Plus, in the 'Amazon Cloud' version that I read, it's difficult to see the overall organization. And, in fact, it's my recommendation that if you are interested in this book that you hop over to Archive dot Org and see their versions which do include illustrations, and notes by the transcriber as to errata (typos, etc.)

That version is also free and available in a number of formats, including pdf.

Having grown up seeing so many of these remedies used, this book is great for having it all in one place. Lots of helpful information if you want to use tried and true home remedies.

When you see a book like this you have to be realistic. It is an OLD book and of course most of the suggestions are out-of-date but that is not why I got this book. As a nurse, I enjoy reading about how people took care of each other back before so-called "modern medicine." I love the antiquated way this book "speaks." I could tell by the cover it was an "older" book. Enjoy it for what it is.

This book isn't formatted in an easy to navagate way. It's difficult to read. I give it one star because it was free. I really didn't find anything in it of use though.

This is good for people who like to use homemade remedies vs using the "traditional" medicines from dr's. If you are into homeopathy this is for you

The fact that there is no table of contents makes this book very difficult to navigate. This is a big negative for me.

The book itself is full of great natural remedies that you can use at home. It is organized in a really logical manner that would be great for a printed book, but it is difficult for the kindle.

It is interesting that some can be considered placebos, I only wish I knew which ones.

Overall, I think it is a good resource.
