It's not often that I find myself getting ticked off as a I read a book. Other people have other opinions and that's almost never a problem with me. However, it IS a problem when someone writes, publishes and sells a book when they have nothing useful to say...or very nearly nothing.

Here's my experience with the book:

1) I see it for sale. I think, "Ten bucks for that tiny book? Really?" But both herbalism and horses are important to me, so I buy it.

2) It shows up. I look at it on the outside. Not only is it only 48 pages, but they are small pages -- 5" by 8" or so.

3) I open it up. I see lots of white space and illustrations. This isn't looking good at all.

4) I flip to the Materia Medica. It starts on the very bottom of page 24 and ends on page 39. So, we've got 15 pages (less than that, actually) of lots-of-white-space, broadly-illustrated, 5"x8"-sized Materia Medica. There isn't much text. Now I'm getting ticked....

Honestly, it just got worse after that. So, I thought I'd share an outline of A - D of the Materia Medica for you (including only the more ridiculous parts of the "substantive" material):

- Aconite ("extremely toxic")
- Aloe
- Anise
- Arnica
- Asafoetida
- Belladonna ("can be deadly if not used appropriately" -- of course, no hint of appropriate use is made)
- Calabar bean ("a powerful sedative...dangerous")
- Calumba
- Camphor
- Cannabis (yes, Cannabis)
- Catechu ("traditionally combined with opium and chalk")
- Chamomile
- Cinchona
- Cleavers
- Cocaine (wait...what? COCAINE?! Well, at least they warn you that using it internally "could contravene the rules of competition sport." They seem to have forgotten the warning that one might need to clear one's schedule for the stint in prison that one would be courting. At least cannabis is kinda-sorta-not-entirely illegal in some states, but cocaine?! Sheesh.)
- Comfrey
- Dandelion
- Deadly nightshade ("see Belladonna" -- also known as "if we're going to include an herb that you have no business using, we're going to take up some extra space to list it twice")
- Devil's Claw
- Digitalis ("see Foxglove"...yet another herb that can cause death if used improperly...and, again, no guidelines whatsoever are provided on proper usage.)

No dosages were given. No instructions on appropriate application were given. In each sparse paragraph, almost nothing useful was shared. Whether you come to equine herbalism with no experience, some experience or vast experience, this book will be of no help to you.

So, that gives you a good overview of the "meat" of the book, I think. There are some other brief sections on nutrition, preparation of herbs, diet, etc. but they're so brief as to be essentially useless.

NB to the authors: if you want to try again to create a useful book on herbs, here is an excellent example of the kind of work that would earn you a five-star review: Medical Herbalism: The Science Principles and Practices Of Herbal Medicine

I thought that this book was a pretty good quide for use of herbs in horses. I think that it could have been better if it would have included more herbs and their uses.
