The author clearly enjoys working with Bamboo and his enthusiasm comes through everywhere making the book enjoyable.
The books is very practicle giving details on growing, propagation, harvesting, cooking, treating and construction. Everything you might ever do with Bamboo.
I've looked at a few other Bamboo books and this is by far the most detailed and useful.
The information is unashamedly biased towards the more useful 'clumping' bamboo, rather that the more weed-like 'running' bamboo, but most of the DIY tips can be used for both. After reading the book, Victor has convinced me that clumping bamboos are the ones to use and that running bamboos should be avoided.
The only small shortcoming I found is that Victor, being based in Australia, is very detailed when it comes to Asian and Australasian bamboo species. For species in South America however, (which I am working with) he is a little brief. Apart from species identification however, everything else he talks about seems to apply equally to South American species (although it will be a little while before I know all the results!).
