To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
So, I gave this book a 4 star because I really do not like the binding. It has a premier binding so the book is to stay open when using. I did not know this at 1st, but when it came to my attention, still don't like the binding! Looks like it will fall apart or tear the pages! But it hasn't.
But everything else is a 5 star and beyond! So many useful recipes, and the materials and ingredients are easy to come by or grow yourself, for the most part. Just a beautiful book. Easy instructions and even warnings on when not to use certain ingredients for use on children and pets. I already do many recipes of my own using all natural ingredients and plants found in nature, but this did give more ideas and information. Love her books! Just can't say enough!!!
