Advance praise for Healthy Herbs:
"An extensive collection of concise, practical applications of herbal medicine that is useful to anyone. Both practitioners and the general public will love this book."
-- Michael T. Murray, N.D., author of over twenty books, including Encyclopedia of Nutritional Supplements and The Healing Power of Herbs. He is also president of the Canadian Association of Herbal Practitioners and director of Wild Rose College of Natural Healing.
"It is good to see a new herb book on the Canadian market that is both credible and user friendly. Linda Woolven and Ted Snider have been able to walk the fine balance of giving enough new information to make this new volume truly useful for the general public, but not so technical that it is hard to read. I highly recommend this book as a good addition for anybody's bookshelf, no matter if herbal medicine is a casual affair or a serious pastime. This book can replace many hours of research for herbal enthusiasts."
-- Terry Willard CIH. Ph.D., president of the Canadian Association of Herbal Practitioners and director of Wild Rose College of Natural Healing.
"This is a wonderful little herb book! The authors have taken the wisdom of herbal lore, blended it with clinical trials and scientific studies, and presented it all in simple, easy to read language. There's just enough information about each plant to be informative but not over whelming. Rather like a well laid out herb garden, it's richly abundant with what's essential about herbalism"
-- Rosemary Gladstar, herbalist and author of Herbal Healing for Women and the Gladstar Family Herbal.
"This is one of the most thorough and easy-to-use guides to herbal supplements available today. It provides clear and reliable information on safe and effective use of common herbs, including potential drug interactions."
-- Donald Brown, N.D. is a leading authority on evidence-based herbalism, author of Herbal Prescriptions for Health and Healing and coauthor of The Natural Pharmacy, 2nd edition, and The A-Z Guide to Drug-Herb-Vitamin Intractions.

"If your bookshelves are like mine - overcrowded - then you are probably careful about which books you allow to stake claim. Healthy Herbs: Your Everyday Guide to Medicinal Herbs and Their Use may seem to lack the necessary prestige with its unpretentious title and presentation, but it's actually worth the small space it will take up. . . The book is readable and accessible in its language, size, and price."
-- HerbalGram, The Journal of the American Botanical Council
