I read the whole book in a single sitting and I learned maybe three things.
If you are familiar with USDA hardiness zones and the AHS Heat Zone map and you know the difference in a variety and a cultivar and a species and you know what an annual, perennial, and biennial are off the top of your head, and you are aware that a lot of things listed as annual by a nursery are actually just cold terminated perennials, then this book probably won't help you much. You are already aware of your local climate and can discern which plants can grow there and which ones will need human help to survive.
Who this book WOULD be useful to is someone new to gardening. It is a great reference for any one with a young gardener apprentice and it offers some basic ideas to get them going. It's a general reference book and you will quickly replace it with a variety of other more indepth books on specific topics more suited to your taste.
In the end I think it's a worthwhile addition to a library on gardening.
You can't go wrong with this book. This is an up to date modern book with a fresh feel to it. It's not one of those re-hashed gardening books filled with old photos from gardening magazines or old gardening books. This is feel like it was create especially for the modern urban gardener, which I am guessing is probably someone like you.
