Nicely done book, now in paperback, of photos of randomly chosen succulents. Photos are of good quality, in most instances. Problems are the impossible task of putting photos of all succulents in a book. This book has a tiny fraction (maybe 0.1%) of what there is in cultivation, and many of the photos are of seedlings (not good representatives of the 'normal' plant in many cases). Also no useful information provided along with the pictures... and some erroneously labeled plants as well.... but I still like looking through it now and then.

Good initial effort by this author, some images are not as good as could be. Second volume is much improved!
