PLAGIARISM - FROM A FREE LEAFLET,
This review is from: Edible Plants: An inspirational guide to choosing and growing unusual edible plants (Paperback)
Why o why have we got to buy a selection of these books, when all the information that these books contain can be found in series of leaflets that are available from the "plants for a future" website. The original book "PLANTS FOR A FUTURE" by ken fern is by far a superior read. To the best of my knowledge ken fern is no way responsible for these books and I therefore feel very annoyed that it is implied that he was part of this cashing-in exercise by using the banner of "PLANTS FOR A FUTURE". Please Please take my advice go for the original book or go through the website [...] for these leaflets. These leaflets were researched and produced by ken fern.

The book is advertised on the pfaf.org website and I reached this Amazon page from a link on the site - doesn't that suggest Ken Fern was involved?

The book is by the charity Plants For A Future who run the free pfaf.org website so I don't really understand the comment. Both books are excellent (Ken Fern's and the new one).

I can say for a FACT ken fern knew nothing of this book until about a month ago, so NO he was not consulted about this book.
