'Reynolds is quickly becoming both a subculture celebrity and a public intellectual, challenging ideas about what it means to live in a city' New York Times 'Probably the most unusual garden book of 2008, On Guerrilla Gardening is well-researched, thorough and truly inspirational' BBC Gardens Illustrated 'This lovely book is both a celebration of the international movement's recent history, and a how-to manual that advises on hardy species, planting techniques and social engineering' Guardian 'Exciting, high-adrenalin stuff. This is gardening repackaged for the 21st century' New Statesman
