Type of book: The author has laid down great stockpile of literature in Group Study of Materia Medica, for the learners of Homoeopathy. The book is explicitly dedicated to the exhaustive study of Group Study in Materia Medica, in a balanced and lucid presentation of the facts of various Groups of Materia Medica. Literary harmony and well co-ordinated matter regarding individual Groups of Materia Medica is an essential attribute of academic excellence, which scholars will experience while going through this book. The book provides valuable guidance about the Study of Materia Medica, particularly notable are the charts which convey the therapeutical information so coherently.

Aims of this book: This book aims to provide comprehensive and valuable information regarding different groups in Materia medica. Although there are multi-authored encyclopedic books in the subject of materia medica but none of them explores the group study of materia medica in such a commanding, methodological and analytical way. The book highlights and explores the keynote characteristic attributes of various groups and also simultaneously compares them in a precise way.

Book Format: The goal of this book is to understand the group tends of remedies of materia medica in a comprehensive and systematic way. The scholastic information imparted in this book will familiarize disciples of Homoeopathy, of how to understand the Materia Medica of a Group as a whole. Dr. J D Patil has produced a very readable book, almost conversational in style, in which they dissected the group study of Materia Medica in an exhaustive way. One of the most exemplary new traits of this book is that the longstanding concept of group study in Materia Medica presented in a new reasoned and more explainable way. It is a unique compilation that presents schematic overview of group-wise study of drugs included in the homeopathic Materia Medica. Flow charts are added for ready reference. This book is far ahead of the books in the same theme and is completely true value of its price.

Finally, on the end note, the reluctance with which I embarked on fulfilling my commitment to writing a review of this book changed to delight as soon as I encountered the crisp clarity and insight in its pages. Printing and binding of book is of international quality.

The book is an excellent resource for post graduates, PhD scholars, clinicians and researchers of homoeopathy. Indeed, it was a privilege to write a review of this book.
