I got this book thinking that I'd take it on hikes just like a normal person would, but when I got it in the mail I looked through it and realized I wouldn't be able to use it. All the plants are listed in alphabetical order. I don't know the names of any plants! How would I ever be able to look up a plant if I didn't know the name of it?! Sure every entry has really nice clear pictures, but that's a lot of pages to rummage through. I realized I'd have to study up before I took it into nature, and that's when I got the idea. I'd read it when nature was calling!
It's perfect for the bathroom because each entry is about half a page and takes maybe 5 minutes to read. So for a quick drop off you can read just one, and for a long stay you can read many more.
If you're interested in plants and their usage, whether it be from a herbology perspective or just a hungry perspective, I'd say this is a good book to get started with. It's a lot like an encyclopedia, each entry is short with just the basic information. It is by no means comprehensive. If you want more info you'll have to search the internet or buy another book. For a beginner like me, who knows nothing about plants, this is a good book. Short and sweet entries with clear color pictures and just enough information to get a basic idea of each plant and to keep me busy while I do my business.
