    This book is divided into 3 sections: 1 - general info on adaptogens, their history, discovery, research, ayurvedic and chinese tradition, as well as some info on how they work; 2 - materia medica with detailed monographs on each adaptogen; and 3 - the use of adaptogens including a chapter on animals.

    However, the authors failed to make the book more doctor-friendly; the book remains to be useful for alternative and complementary medicine practitioners but not so much for the mainstream physicians or skeptics.

    The next problem is the language of the book.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    It is clear that the authors' views on health have been influenced by chinese and indian healing philosophies.

    The chapter describes the stress response in more detail than necessary for this book, and the info presented is confusing and weak.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    But such explanation is not provided.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Only once a specific mechanism of action is stated, that adaptogens enhance the feedback response, and that's without a follow up explanation of why exactly that matters, physiologically (i'm not even asking for the exact biochemical mechanism of how they influence the feedback response).


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    As a result, the physiology and biochemistry of stress are left hanging in this book without ever being used to explain how exactly adaptogens work.
