Some of the frequent questions that come up in a conversation with an aspiring herbalist are often about books. It’s not easy to pick the ones that are really valuable and trustworthy without having a deeper understanding about the subject or extensive background info about the authors. I have a nice collection, consisting roughly about 200 books, not to mention the great e-books I acquired over the years. This is a short list of the most valuable books available on plant medicine today.
