"This makeover of Anna Lewington's Plants for People should re-establish it as a bible for herbiphiles." (Douglas Palmer New Scientist)
"A feast of a book, it's a one-stop shop of useful information about the deep impact that plants have on our lives, from the value of using wild plants in medicine to explaining how the Fairtrade system operates." (BBC Gardener's World)
"Sometimes disturbing, sometimes hopeful, Anna Lewington gives a comprehensive and fascinating insight into the part plants play in our lives ... This magnificent production bolsters the achievments of the Eden Project in Cornwall with its sensible facts about plants ... However you dip into this book some plant miscellany will capture your attention, and the lavish photos keep you page turning. Earth Matters (Friends of the Earth)"
The book that underpins the Eden Project's philosophy.See all Product description

Great, informative book
on 3 June 2009 - Published on Amazon.com
I originally got this book from the library, but I liked it so much I had to add it to my collection. This book spells out how plants are part of many products we use daily - food, medicine, cosmetics, soaps, clothes, etc. The book is well researched and well written. The material is presented in a manner that is easy to understand but also detailed and informative, making the book suitable as a teaching tool, reference, or just for general education. Great for anyone interested in knowing more about the interrelationship between people and plants. Beautiful pictures accompany the text.

plants for people is great
on 13 January 2003 - Published on Amazon.com
This is a great book for people interested in the working relationship between people and plants. It gives hundreds of examples from all over the world showing the immense usefulness of plants. Plants are the base for many items we use everyday, adhesives, rubber, dyes. Its important for people to realize for themselves that we need the natural world for more than just inspiring visuals. It is a working relationship, as long as we keep in mind that plants have requirements as well - clean air, clean water, and clean soil. This is a good book to motivate people to be more aware and enthusiastic about world habitates and economic botany.
