This outstanding field guide is a real joy to use. --Adrian Lovatt, The Eden Project

A wonderful guide. Clear, relevant and accessible writing is combined with beautiful paintings and excellent maps... An essential tool. - Tony Juniper, Friends of the Earth
Exquisitely illustrated... Her flowers are so lifelike you can almost smell them on the page. Yet for all its encyclopedic content, it can easily be carried in the pocket and is incredibly user-friendly. --Sunday Express

Not intuitive, doesn't have a key, technically in order to find the flower you are interested in you have to know already what flower is (and what's the point!) Or you have to go through all the pages. No pictures but just drawings which again, unless you already know the flower, are very confusing. Definitely not recommended.
