Here's what the book IS: It's a quick reference listing of ailments both mental & physical and the crystals that help those ailments. It's listed alphabetically by ailment. For example: You have a migraine, so you thumb through the pages until you come to 'M', find Migraine, then there's a list of several stones/crystals for Migraines. The crystals listed for each ailment can be as few as a single stone or a handful of crystals. Some (not all) of the listings have a Chakra listed after the crystal which according to the book's first pages means that ailment can be treated by placing an associated crystal directly on the related chakra. I'm still learning about chakras myself, so I'll have to experiment with this.
The list of ailments/symptoms is by no means exhaustive. Before writing this review I tried looking up various ailments that I've suffered with in the past to see if they were in the book. Some were listed and some were not and then some ailments I was able to piece together by looking up individual symptoms. For example: I looked up Vertigo, but it was not listed. However I was able to look up and find ear issues, balance issues, dizziness and vomiting all individually. So I could potentially combine several stones to treat the various symptoms of Vertigo. Emotional issues (ie; worry, anxiety, guilt) and Physical issues (ie; backache, eczema, hypertension) are all mixed together and alphabetized.
The listing of ailments and associated crystals are the bulk of the book. The first 58 pages are a general overview/introduction, which is very helpful. I don't want people to think this makes up the majority of the content, it's really only some "helpful pages" to get you started. Topics include: Instructions for use, caring for your crystals, methods of crystal healing, a few examples of how you might use crystals for things such as insomnia, soothing a child, etc., a brief but helpful overview of your Chakras and their locations, using a dowsing pendulum, etc.
In my case this book was exactly what I wanted, a quick reference index of ailments & their healing crystals. I had a migraine a couple weeks ago and using my computer was hurting my eyes (trying to google the crystals needed for a migraine). That's when I realized I need a quick reference book that I can quickly thumb through for a specific ailment and this is exactly that. It's a smaller-sized book too, so it can easily travel with you. My only complaint is that I wish it was more exhaustive. I'd love a really thick volume with even more ailments included but this is still a great help and has many general symptoms. I'm already realizing that I'll need to add to my crystal collection soon, there are many crystals listed that I've never heard of. But I do have a fair amount already, so I'd say it's a reasonable mix of common and less common crystals.
Another of her rock stars is the Enclopedia of Stones, She starts her Id of stones by color making it easy for Crystal newbies to Id what they have.
Rock On, Miss Judy, lol, literally.

Update: I've just found where the page numbers are. They're in the middle of the page at the spine of the book. A bit of a stupid place to put it, especially as generally when you get a new book you don't want to bend it back and damage it. 4 stars still
I absolutely love it.
Best book I've brought for ages. I highly recommend it.
Also arrived alot earlier than expected.
