    Reviews - What do customers think about The Herbalist's Way: The Art and Practice of Healing with Plant Medicines (Chelsea Green)?

    Inspiring and AWESOME!!  Feb 27, 2007
    I cannot give enough praise to this work. The Phillips writing style is a delight and the information, invaluable. I disagree with the below review that disliked the "magazine" format...I loved it! It added so much interest and human element to the book. I thought the bio's of some of the more prominent (and not so prominent) herbalists were incredibly inspiring.
    The authors treat their subject matter with tender loving care. When one reads this volume you feel as though you are having a chat with a good friend. Michael and Nancy are humble but authoritative in their presentation of community herbalism.
    No aspiring herbalist should be without this book! It is a must have for anyone who wants to serve their community (or family)in any capacity as an herbalist.
    This book presents so much information that is relevant to not only the herbalist, but anyone who is interested in herbs in general.
    The only thing I regret about this book is that I didn't read it 10 years sooner!!!
    Excellent in both philosphy and infomative application  Sep 3, 2006
    The ONLY complaint I have about this book is that it was done in a sort magazine format where your reading was interupted by bios of prominent herbalists, with the text of what you were actually reading continuing on several pages afterwards. I'm ADD and reading is one way I like to train my mind to stay with one thing at at time. This book aggravated the symptoms of ADD and kept me trying too hard to stay focused on actually reading the text of the book. Wonderful little tidbits and advice and oodles of quotable quotes, definitely worth the read if you are an herbalist of any stripe.
    Beautiful, informative and invaluable!  Nov 29, 2005
    The Herbalist's Way is the very best book of its kind. Packed with practical tips, heartwarming humor and a very real understanding of the powerful healing plants herbalists daily work with, Nancy and Michael have created an invaluable guidebook for both aspiring and veteran herbalists. This book is not meant to be an herbal, aspiring instead to speak to the practical, spiritual and philosophical aspects of beginning and maintaining the practice of working with herbs, as herbalist, wildcrafter, farmer and/or supplier.

    I really couldn't recommend this book any higher, the writing style is accessible and down to earth, and the design, including profiles of those most involved in the herbal field, lovely black & white photography and gorgeous pencil illustrations, is outstanding. I only wish Chelsea Green had released a hardcover version!

    Nancy and Michael own Heartsong Farm Healing Herbs and create/sell some of the best tinctures and syrups I've ever had the pleasure of using. Nancy is a former apprentice and student of Rosemary Gladstar, and speaks with the same conviction regarding both ecological conservation and the spiritual aspects of healing and herbalism. The Phillips have given all of us deeply involved in the plant world a great gift in this inspiring and informative text. Enjoy!
