This book doesn't have photos so is useless in the field
on 8 March 2015
This book doesn't have photos so is useless in the field, I can't use it to identify specimens which means it doesn't fit the description of "The Essential Guide". Also the list in chapter 12 - "A Wild Food Calendar" doesn't have reference numbers to find the species in the book. So one has to then refer to the index which sometimes isn't clear, (for example I looked up Barberry from the December list and it isn't in the index) to find the page to find the species and then there still isn't a picture. I would not have bought this as it is not my idea of an Essential Guide. So I have to buy another book now.
