I find this book to be most helpful, as well as easy to read and comprehend. I have learned so much about gardening and controlling those pesky weeds, and have actually had fun doing it(if weeds can be fun!) The layout of the book is intelligent, and the illustrations are extremely well done....I don't think anyone reading this book will have any trouble identifying weeds in their garden. It's a good investment for ANY gardener!
This book has lots of helpful information, but color illustrations or photographs would help much more in terms of identifying weeds.
This book is well written. Details in 'Descriptions' and 'Controls' are very good. i also like the information found in what i will call...'boxed notes' often found at the end of each weed's info. packet. However for me, two issues are a drawback; copyright date of 1996 and black ink drawings. So i use this as a training tool but often have to refer to other books with color photos for customers who bring in their wilted samples.
Info is ok. Decent read but didn't really help. Setting this book on top of a weed is equally productive.
