    1. Basically a coffee table book that doesn't live up to its cover. Most of the contents is a nonsensical mishmash of Christian/Hindu/'Olden times'/Greek/Roman lore, with little to no explanation of why these things were believed or how to incorporate them into practice. A lot of the different lore for the same herbs is contradictory because its been sourced from so many places (I assume, there's no bibliography).I was lured in by the cover and got this from a charity shop for £2, which I feel is [...]

    2. Oh dear. There are definitely some pieces in here that are historical. Some, however, are not, and some are just random. No information is credited (there's not even a bibliography) and there are some uses I would find questionable. There's no real time reference -- 'our ancestors in the middle ages' or somesuch is used for something that dates to the 19th century and Romans and Victorians are spread all over everything. The author appears to have taken a mismash of material from their reading, [...]

    3. It is an extensive description of herbs we see in an every day life. But what saddened me the most was the presence of only 25 herbs. In some way I expected more.

    4. Touches lightly on the information in the book. Enjoyed reading about folklore and stories surrounding it.
