This book is certainly for the enthusiast and is not a beginner garden book. If you are only casually interested in commercially available plants, this will overwhelm you with detail. An intermediate gardener could make good use of the chapters on Uses and Growing.

The genus Sedum has over 400 species, and this is the most comprehensive book I've found that covers most of them. It's not a picture book, but rather the most complete study of Sedum species available to my knowledge. If you are looking for a book to help identify species, this is the one you want.

The cultivation and propagation information is an added bonus, and although most of the photos are black and white or drawings, there is also over 100 color photos.

If you are a Sedum enthusiast, this book is money well spent.

One of the few comprehensive books on this interesting genus. (And I should know as I've looked for other books!). Detailed information on the various species of sedums, cultivation and propagation tips. Geared for the sedum enthusiast.

Good technical reference volume, pretty comprehensive. Many line drawings and black/white photos. More color images of actual plantings and the variations of coloration in the plants with seasonal changes would greatly improve this volume.
