This handbook is fine for beginners. It lists 41 palms, providing info on the palm itself, its appearance, different strains, and growth and care. If you want a few common palms in your garden, this book will provide most of the information you would ever need. Unfortunately it is written at a child's level, with an occasional incomplete thought, simple sentences, and sometimes a lack of continuity. For example, one paragraph reads: " There are some reddish teeth like spines located on them leaf stem close to the trunk." [p.167]. It is easy to understand what the author meant, but the book would be easier to read if edited properly.
Wonderful handbook for those of us wanting to learn about the palms in our backyard! The pictures were great and I found it easy to search out the palm or the info that I was interested in. Everyone that has palms or is looking to grow palms could benefit from this book.
This is an odd book, it seems to be written by someone who has never written a book before. While there is some good information for beginners there are questions that the author asks but never answers. Some statements are very vague and pertain only to the authors trees. Some 'sentences' are not even complete sentences or thoughts. I stretched/distorted picture on the front should give an indication that this was not written or edited professionally. There are better books available.
Great book very informative!!! well done
