Buhner does a very excellent job of being both informative and keeping the subject matter interesting/entertaining for anybody who loves the topics of herbalism, homebrewing, or both. He has a firm grasp on our ancestor's feelings, understandings, and references of a multitude of medicinal plants and the act of fermentation. And yet, he manages to convey these ancient "primitive/barbaric" concepts to a "modern" audience, while maintaining a straightforward practicality. Also, the book is decidedly not politically correct, which is always endearing to me. Each recipe is followed by a detailed explanation of the history, content, (and sometimes dangers) of each plant.
