 THE AUTHOR SCOOP

Read any good books lately?My favorite reading is science fiction, there are new good books coming out every day.  Look at Sharon Shinn, Tamora Pierce, Ann Bishop, and so many more talented women fiction writers.If you had to boil your book's message down to one sentence, what would it be?Serve the Light, trust the Light, make a difference in the world with who you are and what you do.

What are you working on now?I prefer to keep future books a secret until they are finished.  No one will know until the manuscript is mailed in.Do you eat your vegetables?I have been a vegetarian since 1983.  I do eat my vegetables.If you had a superpower, what would it be?Wonder Woman, of course.How long did it take you to write this book?  I have been working with herbs for over 35 years, so you could say it took that long to write it.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because it covered a wider range of crystals than the only other crystal-healing book I had, (Crystal Enlightenment by Katrina Raphaell). However, I have found I use Stein's book far less. It crams a great deal of information about a wide range of crystals: however depth is often sacrificed as she goes from one crystal to another in a few words. Because of this information-density it can be hard to find what you are looking for. There is an index but it's not uncommon to look up several entries on the same stone, only to find lots of short, not very informative mentions. Tighter structuring or indexing would have helped greatly.
I also found the women-only tone a little irritating at times. I consider myself to be a feminist but did not feel it needed to be marketed as a specifically "womens" book. I did not feel there was information in there that warrented a separatist approach. She had a tendency to generalise about the nature of women-as-healers in a utopian way, which I thought was unrealistic and also a little suffocating.
Diane Stein has improved as a writer since then: for those who are interested in other forms of healing, "Essential Reiki" is a great, ground-breaking book. (She also tones down the preachiness for that one). For a book on crystals, however, I'd recommend Katrina Raphaell's "Crystal Enlightenment" far more.

I just got the book and immediately checked out the high points, reading the prologue, bits here and there, etc. I knew this was something I could get into. Diane Stein has put into words the same conclusions that it has taken me years to reach. I have not read the entire book, but I will devour every word. The main topic, explanatory from the title, is woman's place in healing, that woman has always been a healer.
She has sections about auras and laying on of hands, of crystals and gemstones and their powers. My sister was in a head-on collision the first of June. It's a miracle she's alive. I took her a necklace of amethyst, which is a healing stone, and it is really making a difference. Diane also has a section on chakras and colors. I am not yet familiar with chakras, but I know from experience the power of color therapy. My bedroom is done in shades of blue and I have a sound-effects machine that simulates the ocean. Oh, yes, it works!
I highly recommend this book, even though so far I have just skimmed off the overflow. Another plus - she expresses herself in plain English. There is not a lot of technical jargon to plow through and say, "Say What? " If I could only keep one of my Christmas gifts, this would be it. Thanks for listening to me.

Format: Paperback
If you want to learn more about gemstone/crystal, aura, or chakra/color healing et. al., or just empowerment of women as healers in general, then this is the book for you. However, it does get a little over-feminist at times (especially in the beginning chapters) and almost sounds preachy in this way, so if you are not a raging feminist, take it with a grain of salt and move on as I did, the rest is worth it. The correspondence tables are excellent as are the sections on the gemstones and crystals and their healing properties, as well as what stones to use to heal or help certain ailments.

I am enjoying the book. It is nice for me to have some of the information I use handy in just one book instead of 6 or more.

Thank you Diane for a well put together book for those of us who do this sort of healing.
