    1. First of all I have to admit that I am completely biased with regard to this book Wolf Dieter Storl is one of my favourite writers and the German version of this book has been my all time favourite book on herbalism ever since I came across it than 20 years ago It has been my treasured companion ever since.This book is not about clinical herbalism and formulations there are already dozens of such books on the market Wolf Dieter Storl is a cultural anthropologist by training, not a medical profe [...]

    2. Found this on my first trip to Powell s in Portland, and I was devouring it all the way home Excellent reference for understanding the connections between modern western herbal models and regional traditions Full of herbal lore, bits of forgotten history and good practical advice Also, unlike some herb books, this one was an absolutely delicious read I ve finished the book, but there are bits in here that I will never finish re reading.

    3. Phenomenal blend of science, folk medicine and lore, history, astrology and mythology, and practical information A wonderful read.

    4. Interesting book and I got a lot of information from it It was a little crunchy that my personal perspective but it s good to read all kinds of things to define what you believe The author is obviously very passionate about herbs which is awesome but I was taken out of the narrative by the overly poetic tone and over exclaimed sentences .

    5. Pre do bra Nema tu nabrajanja biljaka koja je za ta.ovo nije knjiga za trebere.ova knjiga u i ne to mnogo bitnije Nakon ne to povijesti herbalistike i kratkog opisa nekoliko drevnih i uspje nih medicinskih sustava koji na ovjeka ne gledaju kao na stroj kojemu treba mijenjati dijelove uvodi u na in razmi ljanja koji je vi e duhovan, animisti an Nekako kao da potvr uje neki moj staaari i nejasni osje aj.da sad malo satiriziramosje aj da kojekakva moderna kemi arska praznovja i materijalisti ke baj [...]

    6. This is not just another book listing herbs and their uses, in fact very little of it can even be used as a reference guide in this way Rather it talks about the history of plant medicine, and how you can come into this knowledge for yourself without relying on endless texts A good read, and very interesting.

    7. Liked it over all, but since each chapter covers a different topic in brief I was often left wanting to know about things that weren t going to be talked about and wanting less of others Still good and worth a read for most herby folks.
