Format: Paperback
The Herbal Handbook by David Hoffmann is a great source of definitions of actions of the most commonly used herbs. Also of interest is the chemistry of plants, the body systems and their recommended herbs, which include methods of preparation for medicinal and cosmetic use.
The incredible amount of information in this book is easy to read. The section on actions is the most comprehensive I have read yet!
This title should be in every Herbalists personal library!
Beth Anne Haigler, Medicial Herbalist

It's a good book. Written in a way that I'm not used to, but after re-reading it, It's more understandable. It's informative and useful. I have at least one friend who wants one and another I've helped with it.

I added this to my herbal library of reference books. David Hoffman always does a good job with his writings. It is easy to understand and good for the advanced herbalist as well as good learning for the beginner.
