More or less just a book on herbs and what they are used for. I am interested in holistic and homeopathic medicine and would just like to read up more on it and this way understand it better.

I have the book referenced above, it's a good book. I just went up and looked, and I have several slips of paper in it as bookmarks, which means that I've used it a good amount. It's companion book, Prescription for Nutritional Healing, its also excellent.

If you ever run across this book: http://www.amazon.com/Herbs-Pets-Gregory-L-Tilford/dp/1889540641 , it's a good one for your collection.

The ones that I use the most though are the following:

http://www.amazon.com/Way-Herbs-Michael-...39162507&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.com/Way-Chinese-Herbs-...39162507&sr=1-4

The above will list herbs by their properties (warming, neutral, cooling, etc.) and also the meridians or organ system that are affected. For example, when I was looking for a particular herb for Max, I needed to find something that was, for example, cooling and affected two particular meridians, and there was *exactly one* herb that did that, after I went through every one in the book!!

For a general overview, the link above (the Balch book) is probably the best book to have.
