We have received peer review feedback from three members of Commission E and we are currently revising the Introduction to reflect this feedback. Inclusion of the revisions from members of the Commission will result in a publication with increased usefulness and authority. One reviewer, a member of the Commission for 16 years since its inception, said, "I want to congratulate you on the excellent Introduction to the Commission E monographs in the English language. Your book will be very useful not only for the U.S., but also for the European Community and the World Health Organization."
After we revise the Introduction, we will compile the General Index. The book has now grown to an estimated 665-675 pages, significantly larger than the 450-500 pages envisioned several years ago at the start of the project.
Publication of this book will result in a unique, useful, and highly valuable addition to the reference library of herbal knowledge.
