This is an exceptional book filled with great information.  I need to keep ordering it as my family keeps taking mine.  Barnes and Noble is an exceptional store that I get all my books from.  B&N Staff can you please change the author to the correct one?  It should be herbalist  Michael Roland Shaw Moore.
