Sounds like an odd thing to say about a history book, but I genuinely couldn't - as a professional gardener myself I was fascinated by how my trade has developed over the last few centuries. Enlightening and readable, full of very "human" details.
The excellent research and writing was however let down by the production - I agree with the reviewer who mentioned the illustrations were often so blurred as to be useless, and there were a fair few typing/editing errors too, a couple of which seemed to render sentences incomprehensible. Sigh.
