Hyperbole aside, the book is an invaluable reference. Not only does it describe the desert medicinal plants in excellent detail and provide information on preparation and usage, it also contains valuable insights into the preparation of medicinals in general and cleared up a few questions I didn't realize I had about the making of tinctures. My methods are better thanks to this book. That means my medicines will be more effective; no small thing.
A lot of my reading material these days is in electronic form. Generally, just the books I think of as "happy trash"; those novels and stories that amuse me but that could evaporate tomorrow and leave no one much the poorer for it. But, I am keenly aware of which books should never be kept only in electronic form. We need printed books very, very much because they contain the potential to outlast electricity. This isn't a small consideration anymore. This book of Mr. Moore's should definitely be in your analog collection. It needs to last. Buy two copies to be sure.
a hoot, excellent research on plant constituents and medicinal uses. Couldn't have done it without him! Check out [...]
Thank you, Michael.
