This is the book I wish I had had 20 years ago, and hope every homeopathy student has now. Beautifully written and organized. Thank you for this enormous gift to homeopaths and our patients. It is destined to become a classic text.

This book joins the slim ranks of books on homeopathy which one can call literature, like the materia medica of Margaret Tyler or Roger Morrison. There is none of the railway timetable style listings, nor is it suitable for reading on short journeys. This is for a long ride or a comfortable armchair. The only heaviness is the 527 page length. The main body of the materia medica takes us into the feelings – and the science – of each remedy and its themes and a range of other remedies which may be considered. Richard goes deeply inside the remedies and displays all the finesse possible of a well-read homeopath with over 30 years’ experience under his belt. I am for once lost for the right words to describe the depths of this beautiful work. Go for it now.

Comparative Materia Medica by Richard Pitt is an overview of the entire body of new work that has been done in the last fifteen years in homeopathy. It will guide the studious homeopath where they need to go to pursue their studies in whatever topic strikes their interest, be in mammals, fungi or metals. It may show you where your homeopathic deficiencies are and what you need to study next. We recommend this book for an overview of the exciting whole new world of homeopathy. Thank you, Richard.

It is a wonderful book for beginners, I think: it’s easy to read, succinct and economical, and it covers many of the remedies most frequently prescribed, rather than emphasizing the unusual ones that we love to parade at our conferences. Also it follows in the old tradition by taking them one by one, alluding to families, but not going off on tangents like the Periodic Table, miasms, and families, splendid though they are; so it gets the student started on the same path that we all started and still need to start on, i.e., no shortcuts. Yet there’s plenty here for experienced prescribers, too.
