    I'm a pretty strong skeptic when it comes to alternative healing; I want to see the evidence. That said, I and rather a lot of my friends and family have had very good results with some of the herbal remedies presented here, and often mainstream medicine backs up the use of the specific herbs recommended. So, this is one of just a couple home-remedy books I trust much at all. It also has absolutely gorgeous full-color photographs to help identify both living and dried herbs.

    This is a handy reference book, not a read-straight-through book. The layout is really not conducive to reading it page by page. In fact, I really didn't care for it until I started thinking of it as a sort of herbal encyclopedia. Of course, that's what an herbal is. If I had gone into it with a full awareness of that fact, I probably would have liked it from the get-go. The book is divided into two sections. The first is a glossary of herbs.

In fact, I really didn't care for it until I started thinking of it as a sort of herbal encyclopedia. Of course, that's what an herbal is. If I had gone into it with a full awareness of that fact, I probably would have liked it from the get-go. The book is divided into two sections. The first is a glossary of herbs. There are boxes with interesting tidbits, traditional botanical sketches, lovely illustrations, and beautiful color photographs throughout. The second section is about how to use herbs. There is a lot of practical information. Included are recipes for everything from tinctures and infusions to insect repellents and natural dyes. I look forward to trying some of them. I was mostly interested in "Herbs for Healing," which is why I bought the book in the first place, but that chapter left me wanting more. The book ends on a pleasant note with a chapter on herb gardening. Two things to note ... First, the title may be misleading. "New Age" seems to mean "modern" rather than an alternative approach to spirituality. Although, I guess holism does fall into a New Age belief system. Anyway, there's nothing particularly "New Agey" about it. Secondly, the book was originally published in England, and I noticed a few instances where a word or punctuation had not been edited according to American English. The differences may not be that important, or even glaringly obvious, but they occasionally bug me.

    This book is a fun way to learn about herbs and even gardening. I already had a small herb garden (yes, on the balcony of my apartment) when I got the book. Since then, I've made some changes to the plants I keep and harvest. I also started making my own all-natural beauty products, which is something I always wanted to do. The book has helpful photos and illustrations as well as clear definitions and information about planting, and harvesting all sorts of herbs.

    After you read "Back to Eden" buy this book primarily for the photos. If you live in an urban jungles like I do you might not know a weed from a caprifoliaceae. This book provides a photo, drawing or both for every herb it discusses. You will never be fooled by poison ivy again if you take this book with you into your garden!

    Excellent reference. I've used it many time for both medicinal and culinary herbs. The photographs make identification more clear. There's a section on herbs useful for dying wool that is helpful to knitters and one on herbs that repel insects for gardeners. Excellent reference.

    don't be fooled by the title, there's not much New Age about this herbal. it's an excellent first herbal, and made a solid go-to book for our initial apprenticeship program. don't be fooled by the title, there's not much New Age about this herbal. it's an excellent first herbal, and made a solid go-to book for our initial apprenticeship program.
