In this books, Dr. Master has covered all possible information on snakes. Grounding each member of the snake family with its zoological information he then moves to the provings to distill the best and most relevant information from those early trials. Combining that with the toxicological information, noting both primary and secondary reactions he creates an easily memorable schema of the individual remedies.
When it comes to understanding the qualities of the snake family and the indications of the individual members of this group. The work complements beautifully the work we have from Thompson, Avedissian and others. Rarely has any homoeopath been so voluminous in print with technical books in locating a simillimum. This book on the snake family is a delightful and valuable addition to our knowledge of materia medica.

It is perfect: snake biology, mythology, symbolism, themes and concepts, provings and a lot of other information. The bedside guiding symptoms, the commentary of the dreams, the confirmatory symptoms and the differential diagnosis in the book are very good. I believe that this book will complete our knowledge about snake remedies. I have discussed principles and homeopathy several times with Dr. Farokh Master and realized that his homeopathic knowledge is extensive. Keeping in view his homeopathic approach I advice everybody to use his books.

Congratulation. I think the book is very good, especially the chapters about symbolism and dreams. The idea of understanding the language of the body represented in symptoms and the understanding of symbols in dreams has been put very well which makes it practically possible to use this idea. I therefore, very much like the symbol of the snake as the symbol of the medical profession.

Dr. Farokh Masters must be congratulated on his extensive compilation of snake remedies and the addition of clinical date and provings to our materia medica. There is no doubt that this work will further enrich our knowledge and enhance our clinical results.

Fascinated by the snakes and venom that Farokh saw in the Instituto Butanta, Sao Paulo (Brazil), he returned to India to conduct many snake provings. There are many snapshots of situational materia medica, some from modern India, others from mythology, which floodlight the remedies vividly. Rubrics are offered to underline the effects of the venoms, and each remedy have a very useful set of 'bedside guiding symptoms' covering the whole body. The addenda of comparisons between the snake and other remedies are useful in the differentiation which is a complex task. It is impossible not be drawn into this fascinating book, as it is so very readable, ranging like the snakes over many continents and creating vivid materia medica for the mind to digest at leisure.

Farokh Master's Snakes to Simillimum will assist all Classical homeopaths to get closer to the essence of these remedies. He has brought together proving information, materia medica and clinical experience that will be of great use to all those who are interested in practicing classical homeopathy successfully.
