Format: Paperback
I've read this book several times and found it very useful. Though decievingly complicated, a little extra attention can help you make a cheap and effective system. The top three reviewers are obiously all the same person(they have similar comments and come from the same place; no coincidence). The reviewer didnt even read the book, saying that there is no information on making system. There is plenty of info on making cheap to expensive systems, organic or hydroponic. He then pats himself on the back to sell his own book, whos title i was too disgusted to read. Ignore the above three commments and buy this book, it will change your life.

I have read all of the grow guides on the net, but when I saw this book in the bookstore (I live in Switzerland, where pot is legal), I just had to buy it.
It is very interesting and if you just read a few growguides available for free on the net (to get a general idea for what you're into), you'll be fine. The book is very simple to understand, and in plain english.
The book needs a little reorganizing, though, as the chapters are arranged in a haphazard way (that's why it got only 4 stars instead of 5). Other than that, it is a very useful book, and a lot of information that you find in here, you won't be able to find anywhere else (including the free growguides available on the net).
I think it's a good investment.

If you get this book make sure you get the new revised edition put out by Quick American Archives. The cover is a photograph of a closet, not a painting.As always Ed Rosenthal does a great job of walking you through all stages of cultivation. This new edition has a color photo section too.

I disagree with the disparaging reviews. I felt like it was very practical and really gave important information for growing in a small area (4x4 ft- hence "closet cultivator").

Format: Paperback
I had read the previous edition and it seems a lot clearer than this one, except for the chapters that are repeated verbatum. It seems like new technology has made things more complicated instead of simpler and Ed seems to jump from one thing to another without much structure. As usual though Ed's writing is good for a laugh, not for nothing did High Times call him an expert on fertilizer. The pictures are excellent and that it is a nice change to see an affordable grow book with some good bud pictures.

Again a basic read but this one is geared toward the hydro grower and covers it well. It covers everything not in alot of detail and not with any technical mumbo jumbo. Short, Sweet, Simple and to the point. Kudos to Ed Rosenthal!!! A must First read to the first time grower and I believe this one should be in everyones library.

Happy Growing

More About the Author

"Ed Rosenthal holds the distinction of turning more people on to pot than Cheech and Chong." -- Tommy Chong

"Mr. Rosenthal is the pothead's answer to Ann Landers, Judge Judy, Martha Stewart and the Burpee Garden Wizard all in one." --NY Times January 2003

Ed Rosenthal is the world's leading expert on the cultivation of marijuana. His books have sold well over a million copies and his most recent edition of "Marijuana Grower's Handbook" has revolutionized the field. Ed is also on the faculty of Oaksterdam University, the leading trade school for the cannabis industry. His classes teach pupils how different techniques can be used to improve the yield and efficiency of their gardens.

Ed has always been driven by a desire to develop innovative, effective, and non-toxic methods of gardening. He was one of the original American writers to travel to Holland, bringing the knowledge and sophistication of European horticulture to the U.S. through his books and Ask Ed column. While his career has focused on marijuana cultivation, he is an avid gardener of edible plants and flowers as well. Ultimately, Ed believes that no matter the plant, a gardener should never be forced to resort to using potentially dangerous means in order to enjoy a bountiful harvest.

Beyond the garden, Ed views marijuana law as a crucial social issue and has been active in promoting and developing policies of civil regulation. In 2003 he was tried in Federal Court for cultivation in a trial where the jury was not allowed to hear that he was deputized by the City of Oakland to provide marijuana for patients. His trial shifted public opinion in favor of state medical marijuana laws.

His best-selling titles include; The Big Book of Buds series, Marijuana Garden Saver, Best of Ask Ed, and Marijuana Grower's Handbook, among others.
