The book has been added to, tightened up, and well edited to become a modern equivalent of the classic herbal. If I could have only one herbal reference in my library, without a doubt it would be ""The Encyclopedia of Herbs. """

All this being said; I am still quite impressed with the results. It turns out that Mr. Debaggio was diagnosed with Alzheimer's syndrome in 1997. The book was completed in the year 2000. I would not be surprised if some of the errors were a result of this. For now, I believe that this book would be a great reference for home gardeners, nurserymen, and cooks, but needs a little work before I would feel comfortable citing it in academic papers. I will have to leave a more complete review once I finish reading.
If you are ready for the next level and especially if you teach or present information to others (ex. Penn State Extension Master Gardeners programs), this book is a fantastic resource that will advance your knowledge significantly.
