This is a well thought out book with just the right balance of botany and cultivational information and reflects a lifetimes involvement with succulent plants. The photography is first class, the text informative and up to date taxonomically. If I have one grouch, it's that a good proof reader ought to have picked up the typographical errors which pop up from time to time. However this is a minor point and in no way detracts significantly from what is clearly a labour of love and the book itself has been produced to the highest standards.

A wonderful book with the most amazing photos of succulents in the wild. Covers a large variety of plants. Well worth having the book sent to me from the Uk all the way to New Zealand!

For a writer to set about writing a book. It is such a challenge. Then for the author of a Reference work. The commitment really does require so much extended attention. Why? In brief. A reference work is intended to be consulted, time and again. Therefore, even when the authorship is in the hands of an expert, one who really knows the subject inside out. Tremendous extra research has to be done. Checking and re-checking the material. Once the book is published, then others benefit from it. The reader will desire to be entertained, educated and reassured by the contents.
In my honest opinion. Fred Dortort has definitely achieved that task to the full. I am convinced that, those readers who have a leaning toward Succulent plants. Will use this publication as a Christian uses their Bible.

Although it doesn't cover every single species it does cover a large fraction of them, and every group of succulents (but not cacti). Lots of good photos, descriptions of the plants and habitat, and cultural requirements for collectors. I expect to refer to it a lot!

I learned a lot despite the 9 specialist books on succulents that I already have, particularly about echeverias. I still have some plants that I cannot identify but I keep hoping

If you like plants this book is really interesting. The sort of book to read, browse or just enjoy the pictures. It also is quite likely to have you trying to buy some!
