Good book but bad printing Sept. 13 2013
By Matt B - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The chapters cover good introductory concepts on cellular structure and applications of botany, but several (30?) pages have ink smears all over them. The book is readable and the color photos that don't have bad printing are very handy, but the pages that are blotched out and smeared are unacceptable in a book that costs over $130 dollars. This was a bad batch/printing, your luck may be better.
Better than the Hardcover Sept. 4 2015
By Justin Rackham - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Finding this copy was a hidden gem. It is exactly the same as the hardcover, U.S. Version, just with a soft cover and different graphics on the front. It was also 1/4 of the price of the U.S. Version.

The book has very detailed tables and photos for learning about plants, but also includes some basic biology info, and a bit of chemistry.

All in all, a well rounded text book that is interesting to read and informative. Can't beat the price. Take care of it and it will be there just as long as the hardcover edition.

I have this book for my botany class, bought via campus book store. I have learned more from the book then from my teacher. It's quite clear and very informational. I'll definitely be able to use this information in my further studies.

A little wordy Dec 14 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was my book for an intro botany class. It goes into a lot of detail at a higher level than I was prepared for in an intro class. Not always a bad thing I guess.
