I got this book in May of 2010. I paid $26.95 for it, though I see that some places have it for $19.95. It seems as though it is a limited edition print and is rather hard to find.

No matter. It was a bit of a disappointment. It is touted as having 64 pages, but you don't get 64 pages of different information. It has the same 10 pages of text written in three different languages, and is only a very basic lesson on how to grow and bloom schlumbergeras.

I wanted to like the fact that it had alot of pictures of various Christmas Cacti in it, but the pictures seemed to be fuzzy, back lit, and out of focus. It was rather hard to see the flower "detail" in the pictures.

If you are looking for a really good book on Christmas cactus, the best book is still the A. J. McMillan book, and is a better value.
