4.0 out of 5 stars Needs to be read a lot before a real judgement can be made, 14 April 2013

This is a book for using and will vary according to each reader. It is a sincere attempt to give one an insight into "losing your mind" by meditating.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good picture of the making of a garden, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this book because I was going to see this garden and wanted to know more. And this is what I got. I have read better books on gardens but it has all one needs as an introduction.Roy Strong is much more a writer than a true gardener --there is something lacking in feeling!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whether you are into astrology or not, this is a very interesting book. My friends have been amazed at the accuracy with which he looks at "types" of people. Almost uncanny and obviously based on some very thorough research.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I expected as a very keen gardener, but an O.K. read., 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was expecting more real gardening insights and or anecdotes but this is a light froth of a book, only glancing at themes and plants.
