By offering the underlying science necessary to understand the safe and effective use of herbal medi-cine, ABC has delivered an important resource for professionals and interested consumers. A bonus that healthcare practitioners will find attractive is the ability to earn continuing education credits.

"Herbal medicine is undergoing a renaissance of interest in science and society. The ABC Clinical Guide to Herbs is an urgently needed benchmark of the scholarship that exists in this field. This is that rare book that is a must for laypersons, clinicians, and researchers alike. This volume deserves to stand alongside Gray's Anatomy as one of the defining texts of medicine," said Larry Dossey, MD, the executive editor of Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine and the author of Reinventing Medicine, Healing Beyond the Body, and Healing Word.
