Excellent book. Covers entire spectrum of plants and cultivation. Detailed descriptions and information. Well-known author.
Will be helpful as I try to cultivate plants. Well known author.

This book is an okay book. It has good examples of plant experiments which you can do if you have a stable collection. However, I prefer to sit and read Savage Garden by D'Amato and get his more insightful view.

even I have more than 20 years at this moment growing CPs It would be much easier if I have this book before

As has been said by others, the authors are unethical and support (even in their book, in writing!) the wild collection of carnivorous plants, many of which are now in danger of extinction from, guess what, habitat destruction and wild collection by poachers. The authors have been known through out the CP community to actually financially support plant poachers and this coupled with the poor accuracy of the books information makes it a poor purchase. Please, try D'Amato, Slack or Rice's texts if you want a real CP book. This is garbage, written by trash. Do not give them your money because they are helping to wipe out the plants you care about.

This, in my opinion, makes it an unworthy book. Purchase 'The Savage Garden' or, if you can find it, 'Insect Eating Plants and How to Grow Them'. Both are much more worthy of the enthusiasts money!

I bought this book when it first came out and before I knew much about poaching and how it was endangering wild plants, especially carnivorous plants. After reading the book and their opinion on field collection I'm appalled and ashamed to have spent money on this book and supported this business in any way.
This book bothers me in that it contains many inacuracies on plant culture and distribution. But that's not all. The author has some politically incorrect opinions on wild collection of endangered plants. Try D'Amato's, "The Savage Garden" instead.
