Great resource and easy to use

This is a great resource for anyone in the herbal medicine arena, at any knowledge level. It is well laid out and easy to read. And since it is spiral bound it lays flat, so it doesn’t flip page or flip shut like a traditionally bound does.
So glad I purchased it from Lay it Flat!
