"Der Autor hat in diesem Werk eine bedeutende moderne Dokumentation der Heilpflanzen Indiens vorgelegt ... Dieses sorgfaltig recherchierte und editierte Referenzwerk fullt eine bisherige Lucke und bietet ... ein handliches und leicht verstandliches Nachschlagewerk und eine grosse Informationsfulle zu dem wachsenden Interesse an indischen Heilpflanzen und ihren Potenzialen. Das Buch ... sollte als Standardwerk in den Universitatsbibliotheken stellen und eine grosse Leserschaft unter den Spezialisten, Lehrlingen und Liebhabern der Phytotherapie finden."
