The book is illustrious in its own extent and is mostly discussing Hahnemann's 6th Edition, the last authority on Organon as Dr. Hahnemann himself wrote, "I have after 18 months at work have finished the 6th edition of my Organon, the most nearly perfect of all."
In this book Robin Murphy discusses the 6th edition in detail highlighting those points which were not included in the 5th edition or were misinterpreted in the 6th edition with a very practical approach unique to his own thus making case taking and prescribing easier. The author has taken great pains in explaining the 50 millesimal scales and its efficacy, a much needed work sought after by the homeopaths for a very long time.
It is this new method (50 millesimal potency) and many more points and illustrations that the reader will be enthralled to go into and enrich himself with further knowledge of the subject. For the convenience of the readers, the entire original 6th edition of The Organon by Hahnemann has been included in the latter part of the book.
