This book struggles to offer the reader “Expert” information within its limited 144 pages - that are bound in a supermarket newsstand-type format. It asserts (without evidence) to cover a profoundly expanded horticultural topic within its limited tabloid format.
“Vegetables & Herbs” The topics divisibly are too vast and ponderous to address within the constraints of 144 pages.
This volume publisher (Sterling) cranks out soft cover magazine-type presentations in the $15.00 price range aimed at the median, impulse buyer passing a Box-Store bookrack. It appeals to the incidental gardener’s competence level as well as their interest.
The title: “The Vegetable & Herb Expert” is somewhat of an affront, as its degree of information, merit, or excellence is that which one finds on any generic, Big Box – Home Improvement store rack.
I do not recommend this effort to well attuned, sophisticated, or serious gardeners.
