Quote from review of the first edition
"...there is little Steven Kayne does not know about the knowledge pharmacists need to dispense
homeopathic remedies. Excellent background material on homeopathy, sound principles for homeopathic prescribing over a wide range of conditions and easy-to-use reference tables for 60 common remedies and the symptoms related to their prescription make this an important book for every pharmacist."
