I got a copy of this at a garage sale and the first summer I referenced it for my summer patio garden and also my indoor plants was the first time I felt that I was keeping healthy plants. The pages are full of great pictures, descriptions are easy to understand and made simple to follow. Great book for beginners or anyone who just can't seem to figure out why the heck their plants die all the time. For experienced planters, it is a good book to pull some creativity out of you indicating plants that live well together so you can design your own patio or house gardens. I actually lost my original copy and am buying a replacement one right now.
