I have been looking forward to a book which would cover all the existing info of the Lacs; a most deep acting group of the animal remedies. One of the few people in the world who would have the competence, knowledge and drive to do this is Patricia and she did it - so thank you very much, Patricia.
Kees Dam

In the production of this collection of Lacs, Patricia has gone back to the source material in Animal Mind, Human Voices and other Lac provings and her attention to detail is impressive.
Nancy Herrick

This work is the most comprehensive opus on the Lacs. The book will not only help all those doing research on the Lacs, but will help finding the right remedy for a patient when a Lac is being considered, a much easier task. It is a work which I wholeheartedly recommend.
Roger van Zandvoort

This is a monumental book ... a priceless work ... an indispensable volume
Francis Treuherz Links 24(10) 2011

This is a thorough piece of research, well presented ... a great resource which I would whole-heartedly recommend.
Linda Gwillim The Homeopath Spring 2011

Patricia Hatherly's book is an extensive work... a comprehensive documentation ... a colossal contribution to our repertoire of treatment options, bringing, as it does, so many of the milks into one volume.
Lesley Lee Similia 23(1) 2011

This is a work of artistic analysis with simple but elegant presentation; a rare combination.
Chetna Shukla The Homoeopathic Heritage October 2011 impressive and comprehensive compendium... indispensable to pinpoint the appropriate Lac... text is organised in a visually appealing fashion...easy to read.
Maria Reid Interhomeopathy 2012 February 2012

The Lacs: A Materia Medica & Repertory is currently the definitive reference for milk remedies; as such it is, in my opinion, a must addition to all practicing homeopaths' libraries.
George Guess AJHM Summer 2012 Volume 105 Number 2; 93-94

...a beautifully presented book...a wonderful resource... I thoroughly recommend this as a valuable addition to homeopaths' materia medica libraries.
Therese Boyle Spectrum of Homeopathy 2012-4

Hatherly's book is a doorway into understanding milk energies as expressed through different mammalian experiences in our world, and is the single best resource for understanding these essential remedies. Useful as a reference, yet accessible with casual reading, "The Lacs: A Materia Medica and Repertory" is a fun, stimulating and thorough exploration of the milk remedies. With almost effortless reading it builds a solid foundation for identifying and successfully implementing these essential remedies in practice.
