With homeopathic remedies now commonly found in drugstores and even in supermarkets, there is a growing interest in this form of alternative medicine. Lockie and Geddes, coauthors of The Women's Guide to Homeopathy (LJ 12/93), have written one of the most physically attractive books on the subject. The photographs and illustrations of the remedies are stunning. What also sets this book apart from others on the subject is a "consititutional type questionnaire," which homeopaths use when they prescribe remedies. Also included is information on the history and philosophy of homeopathy, photographs of nearly 150 remedies arranged by their Latin names, and an explanation of how to treat common ailments. Recommended for its illustrations, even for libraries that have other books on this subject.?Natalie Kupferberg, Ferris State Univ., Big Rapids, Mich.
