I would recommend this book highly to anyone who has a serious interest in the beneficial aspects of Chinese medicine on their health. A curiousity of Chinese herbology will be satisfied by the easy to understand explanations of the properties of herbs, their uses, & Simple Remedies. The descriptions of Chinese Herbal Patent Medicines and Chinese Herbal Diet, and explanation of the causes of Disease round out the whole picture, serving to educate the reader in a manner not witnessed in most Western health/diet literature. Lastly, this is a good resource guide & organized well to take along shopping. Lesley's "The Herbs of Life" is a great companion to this. I purchased it several years ago & refer to it over & over again. Enjoy!
