This book contain most interesting and unknown information about the Homoeopathic remedies. So this will be found complimentary to any existing book.
This is a new form of presenting Homoeopathic information, presenting all information as concisely as possible. The greatest innovation of this book is the compactness of the symptoms.
Highly useful for reference purposes.
It is not a materia medica or a Key note.But information about rare & unknown remedies in crude form
All the symptoms are enumerated without special emphasis so it is merely a tool
Don’t contain all symptoms of every remedy in Synthesis
Remedies having one or few symptoms excluded, because their picture is not yet clearly profiled.
The author references are not mentioned, they can be found in synthesis.
Difficult to study and remember
Cost is too high

The index enumerate all the remedies presented in this book
Remedy abbreviations are as same as in Synthesis.
If the remedy name is followed on the next line by an arrow and another remedy name, we have to consult the later remedy to find the symptom.
