I only include book reviews on my site for books that I’ve read pretty much cover-to-cover. The exceptions are usually the Appendices or lists of Resources or Works Cited in any given title. I try at least a handful of the techniques or ideas from the book, although sometimes I adapt the author’s projects, techniques, or ideas to suit my own use or needs rather than following the project precisely step-by-step. I only post reviews of tools I use, most often regularly.
If you decide to buy any of the books or tools in my review section, click on the link to Amazon to do so and I’ll get a small pay-back from Amazon because I am part of the Amazon Affiliates program. For more good reviews, see The Practical Herbalist’s We Like section. I often post reviews there rather than here, plus there you’ll get a second perspective on the book to boot.
