This is the second book on houseplants by the author... the first being amazingly successful, and published worldwide.
The most useful bits are the small photo's by which you can attempt to identify the plants you want to find out about.
The photo's though are very grainy, and poor quality in my opinion, and not too good. There is poor cross linking, and the book looks very dated indeed, despite being recently written.
It shows ideas as to where plants can go, using original 1970's-early 1980's photographs, and as such looks horrendously outdated. The language though is clear, and it has the occasional little gem. Buy if you have the series of books, to complete the set, otherwise think carefully. Having said that, this is a unique book, and useful in its own way.
