I am a Master Gardener and frequently get questions about growing berries, so I went in search of a good comprehensive reference book. I also decided to add a berry garden with several varieties of berries on my property. I purchased a few books, but found this one extremely informative and it answered all my questions. The edition I purchased was printed in 2009 and the list price is only $19.95. This book covers variety recommendation for different growing zones, diseases affecting them, parts of the plant affected, pruning (which had great illustrations)and basic growing care. Grape production is also covered for the backyard grower.
