Most of you know that Madeleine is one of my favorite teachers. This book represents her life’s work…the culmination of years of study, of teaching, and of treating patients. I would not plan on sitting down and reading it cover to cover, but rather picking an intriguing starting point from the index and following where that leads you.
Another delight in this volume: seeing so many friends, colleagues, and people I have studies with over the years quoted. Even me!
A valuable reference for all, no matter where you are on your aromatic journey.
