'The book is lively, entertaining and educational and the author's personal
comments and witty asides, often made me laugh out loud.  It is a credit to
his skill and dedication that every fact-filled sentence is rich in
information about each chosen plant, be it ethnobotanical, economic,
folklore, myth, history, religion, culinary or etymology - not a word is
wasted......  Lucille Clerc's astonishingly beautiful, vibrantly coloured
illustrations are an absolute delight, summing up the key points about each
plant perfectly - you will find humour in these too.    This book has a
broad appeal, especially to a lover of art and plants.  It would make a
fabulous gift, yet contains enough facts to be of benefit to students of
plant sciences, it is also a must have for anyone who guides at a public
garden or has an interest in the relationship between plants and people in
the past, present and future.'
Matthew Biggs.
