I have only read the extract of the book available here so can't comment on the whole but I was very impressed by the clarity of expression, wealth of detail and practical approach. Allopathic medicine really has little to offer in the prevention or treatment of viral infections so this is a very timely and valuable addition to our knowledge base. I believe herbal medicine, particularly traditional Chinese herbal medicine, is the best hope we have for protecting ourselves from these increasingly virulent organisms and I hope this book gains the wide acceptance it deserves. Thank you for posting the extract. I have learned something valuable to me already.
