2.0 out of 5 stars Has some useful information but you need to dig for it. March 4 2014

This book really needs a good editor to go over it. While the English is understandable enough the author is definitely a non native speaker. The book reads like it is written by an Indian Phd student. The first ten percent of the book that goes on and on about vegetable classifications doesn't add anything other than length and should be edited out. Other than the authors name cluing me in I had to get deep into the book to confirm what I suspected. It's written for India and the timing of when to plant and harvest is hard to align to the rest of the world if you don't already know. Some of the information is either incomplete, wrong or outdated. The information about treating blossom end rot in tomatoes with a calcium spray is outdated. There is mention of pesticides that I'd very careful check out before I used them as I suspect that some of them aren't available in the US. In summary there is some information in there, but it is too marred by incompleteness and unstated limitations to be valuable to anyone that doesn't know it already. Be aware that it uses the metric system but isn't the reason I have a problem with the book. I'm glad I got it as a free kindle book and didn't pay for it. I can't decide between a 2 or a 3. I'd call it a 2.5. It's not OK, but it's not as bad as I don't like it.

Thoroughly enjoyed! This book provided information not normally found, nutritional values were included, something not normally found in your how to books. My only problem is not everyone uses metric, so I had to convert it to imperial. Otherwise, a very good.
