From Library Journal
This attractive herbal is one of the best this reviewer has seen. A brief history of herbal medicine leads into a dictionary of 130 herbs, all well illustrated both as growing plants (with close-ups of leaves, roots, berries, and flowers where appropriate) and in prepared forms (dried stems, powders, etc.) Charts describe a wide range of ailments and the appropriate home remedies. The book also includes excellent instructions on preparing herbs for use. If your copy of Miriam Polunin and Christopher Robbins's The Natural Pharmacy ( LJ 8/92) is always checked out, buy this book too. Both works are good and quite similar, but Ody's book covers fewer plants in greater depth than The Natural Pharmacy.

As an aside (and this is hardly the seller's fault) for informational purposes:
While the book is well written and beautifully illustrated, the first thing that my sister noticed was the conspicuous absence of turmeric from this book... so while it is fairly comprehensive, I wouldn't call it a "complete" guide to medicinal herbs.
