There are a few herb classes provided on-line, but I'm not sure where
they are just yet. perhaps Planetherbs.com something like that?
Also, in regards to a book that can help you understand herbal medicines
better, there's a great book that I've been using lately called Chinese
Herbal Medicines - Comparisons and Characteristics by Yifan Yang,
published by Churchill Livingstone. ISBN: 0 443 07166 7
It is a good introduction, but it is not a lightweight book. There are
many consumer targetted books that have pretty pictures and talk in
general terms that may or may not have any real value in actually
helping people, but this book really is excellent.
I also encourage practitioners who want to understand the subtle
differences between herbs in a category to get this book.
Between Heaven and Earth is okay too, but as I recall, it takes a more
non-standard five element approach to the topic which is fine if you
want to do it that way, but most TCM herbalists don't.

Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
