The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone, 24 July 2006
I bought this book and it's accompanying workbook but found the exercises rather tedious. I had a nagging feeling at the beginning when I realised I didn't like the style of the post intructional drawings as much as some of the pre instructional ones as they lacked a certain charm. And then when I realised I preferred the results and the process of my pre instructional work too I decided that the book and her style of teaching were just not right for me.

It seems that for a book which promises to help you to use your creative side it's rather technical and doesn't seem to encourage expression.
The Edible Container Garden: Fresh Food from Tiny &hellip by Michael Guerra

I have been looking around for a book on this subject for some time and this one certainly didn't disapoint, it is very well put together with gorgeous photography and practical advice, there is also a section dealing with each plant in turn for quick reference, which is very useful. From the title it isn't obvious that the author includes information on raised beds, so it makes the book relevent to practically everyone who wants to grow food in anything but the traditional allotment type way.
