5.0 out of 5 stars Good accessible information 23 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a straightforward book which enables anyone to grasp the essentials of growing tomatoes using hydroponic techniques. Depending on how technical you wish to be, detailed building of simple and more complex systems are discussed using pots/wood/pvc pipes and gutters/polythene sheet. The techniques described will save you time and trouble working overcoming all the practical difficulties yourself and give you a working system. Building as described will save you money over buying overpriced kits from commerial suppliers. All aspects are covered from raising hydroponic tomato transplants to, nutritional requirements (and recipes), to pests/diseases and nutrient disorders.

1.0 out of 5 stars desapointing read 13 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
To a friend I would say: do not buy this book it is a waste of money, you will not learn anything this is full of inacurate and un fraud, probably accomplished by copying and pasting various information collected on the internet most of it being common knowledge. Furthermore it is written without passion. Why has this book ever been publish? And where does he get such positive review is a mystery and could be the subject of a more interesting read.

5.0 out of 5 stars ridiculous review 7 Jan 2003
By L. Hubbard - Published on Amazon.com
After reading a rather scathing review posted on Amazon.com entitled "Get an editor" I chose not to order this book. Later, I happened across the book at Borders, thumbed through and purchased it. The book is is excellent!
I believe the review misleads readers. I will address the two specific criticisms: Bad chemistry? Resh very carefully explains the concept of PH ( the reviewer missed this)-reference to a PH of 4.0 as very acidic was relative to the PH needs of tomatoes and, in fact, 4.0 is very acidic for a tomato (just a fact of life, not bad chemistry). Sulphuric acid for novices? Resh talks about sulphuric acid/hydroxides because they are, indeed, used within hydroponics (see hydroponic supply web sites). However, he is very clear that he does not recommend their use and lists the same reasons given by the reviewer (somehow the reviewer overlooked this also).Resh goes on to recommend specific safety measures for those who insist on their use.
The book is clearly written, well illustrated and extremely practical. I have read it twice and highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ah! Yes, red ripe tomatoes floating around in nutrient 28 Feb 2000
By Paul Simone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is my fourth hydroponic book and it tells the story as good as the others do. I give it four stars because it taught me many new things about tomatoes that will come in handy no matter which way I garden. I'm really impressed with the content of this small book in regards to the tomato plant and its fruit. The diagrams are drawn accurately but are small do to the size of the book. The details of the nutrient solutions, how to mix and apply them, has just about scared me off from hydroponics. I don't like dealing with chemicals of any kind. I know that I can buy them pre-mixed but think about this whole thing; what's wrong with this picture? Maybe nothing, but still I wonder.
Please consider buying this book for the wealth of information about the growing of tomatoes; it's well worth the small price. And just think, if La Nina' continues to parch the earth we may all be learning how to grow food hydroponically!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful 10 Oct 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This short book is intelligently laid out, with just the right amount of diagrams. The text is easy to follow, even for a beginner. I am in the middle of attempting to follow Howard Resh's advice, as of early October 2001. If he is correct, I could be enjoying my first harvest before November!...

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid material but dated 25 July 2005
By HarryHydro - Published on Amazon.com
Dr. Resh's book is copyrighted 2003 but was first published in 1993 and it looks like there were no updates or revisions in this version. The information he gives is good solid technique and practice that is the basis of any hydroponic system. I would put this in the beginner to intermediate knowledge range. His diagrams of systems are strictly from a homemade point of view but the art of building DIY systems has grown tremendously since he wrote this 12 years ago. One last note - in his resource lists there is not one mention of the internet.

I'll keep this book on my shelf for the next time someone asks me how do you do it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful! 1 Dec 2007
By Blake Brasher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the fourth book on hobby hydroponics that I've purchased and I think that it contains a lot of useful information for such a thin, fast read. It does a very good job explaining how to set up a NFT (nutrient film technique) system for tomatoes. It is also told me that tomatoes prefer a pH between 6.3 and 6.5. I had previously read the range was 5.5 to 6.5 and keeping the pH at the higher level has seemed to really improve the health of the plant and the rate of growth. I discover new tomatoes growing on my single plant almost every day now!
