Fisher describes many cures in short little chapters from how to treat a cold, (lemonade, or brandy, or sage leaves, or onions) to how to cure a hangover. There is advice in each chapter and her thoughts are integrated, including those on the perils of obesity and the fad dieting to cure it, or to avoid it. You have to remember this is a reissue, written originally in 1961. I appreciated Fisher's updated preface in 1980. She died in 1992.
This truly is an interesting little book, one many would find worthy of note, both to read and maybe to even attempt some of the tried and true folk remedies.
I would suggest another of her books Long Ago in France. a great memoir.
