I love this book, and take it out of the shelf every season!
It is clear, complete and very helpful.
There are no photo's, but the drawings are clear and just as useful as pictures.
This book is one of my favorites!
I would rate this book positively in that it's a good solid primer for growing and maintaining commonly grown fruit trees. I've consulted my copy frequently for information on cherries and plums. If you are growing (or considering growing) "common" fruits (cherries, plums, pears, apples), this would be a good book to start with.
