"This was a fantastic read! From the very first chapter – Welcome to My World – I was intrigued and drawn to a subject that I'd mistakenly taken for granted all my life. D. J. gives herbs their rightful place center stage, clearly explaining their health and wellness benefits. Once I had learned why to grow herbs, D. J. then took me through a step by step guide on how to grow and use them. As a behavioral science expert, I've spent 30 years advising and altering people's behavior. Helping big brands make their brands all that more appealing by tapping into the psychology of consumers. Your Indoor Herb Garden has given me a complete new set of tools with which to alter the moods of consumers, and myself. Anyone interested in human health and wellbeing should get hold of this book immediately. It's frankly brilliant. And there was me thinking herbs were just . . . herbs."

"I know the importance of good health. I have been trained in the healthcare industry, and I am challenged with an incurable bone marrow cancer that I am pursuing with unconventional protocols. I have refused chemotherapy and have outlived my original prognosis by nearly two years, so I know the importance of herbs for health and cooking. What a treasure trove D. J. Herda has put together in this beautiful and easy-to- understand book. From the history of herbs to their medicinal value and the "ins and outs" of using them. Great stuff. Dig in!"

"A great book! D.J. Herda's Your Indoor Herb Garden is a fun read that's both inspiring and educational. I never considered an indoor herb garden before, but it makes sense physically, emotionally, and spiritually. His book is a welcome resource and a captivating read that had me from the start: "Herbs make great indoor additions to the human domicile." And when I say inspiring, I mean it. As soon as I finished the book, I drove straight to the nursery and bought a batch of seeds and had to send D.J. the photos to prove it! So excited to start my indoor garden!"
