This book is likely the most detailed guide ever written on what is considered one of nature's most effective intoxicating and stress-reducing "entheogens" or "ethnobotanicals". It includes details on scholarly research that shows the superiority of Kava to pharmaceutical grade drugs used for reducing stress and anxiety. This great literature also covers the traditional "spiritual use" of this plant as well as the political, and economic importance of it. Aside from the intoxicating nature and pharmacology of Kava, there is even evidence suggesting that its effective for use in treating asthma, tuberculosis, and,, hold up... even ... venereal disease!! ?! .. [woah... you guys..] Do some more research on that last one [about the VD], and potentially consider being more picky with your hook ups, sayn? [*drum roll thud*]. ( i.e Don't drink all that vodka, save some for home-made tincture production fun. )
It's one of my favorite intoxicating plants of all time. Many find it "very useful for meditation", and a "alternative to alcohol and xanax", or just for "relaxing after a hard days work". I find that using it on occasion prevents any sort of tolerance to the very pleasant effects that it offers. The root is very easy to prepare and is simply squeezed out into cold water as it was traditionally consumed by Vanuatu Islanders for centuries. To learn more about Kava visit my page on it by clicking here. This page is focused more on the book in question here. After all, this is a review. Don't expect a fairy tale story like the cover of the book depicts.. Expect science and a few first hand preparation methods and inside knowledge to enhance your experience with the root.

The first paperback copy of this guide was published by Yale University Press. This literature is is one word, thorough. The amount of academic research on Kava that's contained within its rich mass of exquisit text, is more than one could find on their own in a short term, much less even a more moderate term... So if you want rock solid citations, and big data that drug companies likely don't want you to discover, then this collection of pharmacological knowledge is a great stepping stone to help you see how nature is in fact a never ending pharmacy, working around the clock to serve and protect life under the biosphere.
