4.0 out of 5 stars
Pages falling out, 30 Sept. 2012
Martin Crawford's book is an excellent guide for anyone interested in permaculture, forest gardening or just people with an interest in growing some more unusual types of veg. I am sure I will consult the book on a regular basis. Being excellent concerning the content, the more disappointing is the poor binding. I ordered a copy and on opening it for the first time, the first bundle of pages fell out. I sent the copy back and ordered another one, because I thought it might have been a one-off. The next copy lasted for about a week, despite being treated with utmost care, before the same happened. I have now sello-taped the pages which have fallen out because I really want to keep and use the book. However, to get full marks, a book needs to be fit for purpose - inside and out, hence the four stars.
