"A comprehensive introduction worthy to be on the shelf of any holistic practitioner, herbalist, farmer or parent. The book ... shows an appreciation for the melding of traditional practices, tools, and wisdom with modern research and insight."
"Humans have misused antibiotics to the point that these drugs are becoming worthless. In Herbal Antibiotics, Buhner argues that by turning to plants for healing, we would be working with nature--and improving our chances of surviving the superbugs."
"In this timely book, Buhner reveals that plants are the people's medicine, possessing attributes that pharmaceuticals never will."
