A well laid-out book that introduces new concepts and botany terms in logical sequence. If one starts at the beginning and reads to the end, each chapter builds on previously covered information. Read full review
“A clear, nontechnical explanation of how plants work, and our bestselling book. It succeeds in explaining the complex processes of plant growth, functions, adaptation, responses, and reproduction in simple language. As the author intended, the gardener can come to understand a plant "from the plant's point of view."-Amazon.com product review
