Great beginner book on palms and palms- great photos of every plant discussed (though tons of plants left out). This book was one of the most useful to me for years because of the photos. However, there are a LOT of incorrectly identified palms in it- not enough to detract from it's usefulness, but definitely makes one suspect other things about the information, etc. Too bad it's been out of print for about 15 years now, though there is (was?) an abridged, paperback version in print with many of the same photos in it. THere are better books out now, but 10 years ago when I was learning about palms, this was the best there was really.
