At first glance, Ody's Home Herbal looks like a coffee-table book in which the artistic effect outweighs the substance. But this profusely illustrated guide is packed with information, creating a real "visual dictionary" of herbal remedies. While most such guides mention terms like infusions, decoctions, tinctures, compresses, and ointments, this book uses excellent photographs to reveal the actual process of preparing them. Equally detailed illustrations track herbs through their stages of growth and preservation. There is clear instruction here on the harvesting, preparation, and therapeutic properties of 60 herbs, with particular attention given to specific ailments and the needs of people at different stages of life. The A to Z Guide to Healing Herbal Remedies covers much of the same material, but in a quick reference format and without illustrations. The focus is different: this book lists herbs that are already prepared in the form of capsules, teas, extracts, oils, and tinctures and are commercially available in drugstores and supermarkets. There are two listings, one by ailment, one by herb, with coverage of dosage, benefits, precautions, and preventative and curative functions. These two books complement each other in purpose and information presented; much of the content is not repetitive (e.g., Ody covers bedwetting, while Elias and Masline cover AIDS; Ody lists herbs alphabetically by botanical name and Elias and Masline by common name). A library would do well to have several books on herbal medicine. Ody's is essential for libraries having no illustrated herbal books; Elias and Masline's meets the needs of patrons interested in convenience rather than the painstaking preparation of herbs.?Valerie Vaughan, Hatfield P.L., Mass.

This blends Eastern and Western medicine in a guide which tells how to maintain health through herbal remedies and applications. Over 200 photos supplement health profiles, preventive treatments, and a directory of over 60 herbs used in treating common ailments. Especially valuable here are the lists of ingredients and proportions for making herbal mixes at home: something lacking in many herbal coverages. -- Midwest Book Review
