Well laid out and easy to understand.

This is seriously the WORST and I cannot stress this enough, the WORST book I've ever read concerning marijuana growing.

I'm not sure why this guy wrote this book, maybe it was supposed to be a joke, but please do not take it seriously.

Its amazing how someone can write a book on cultivation of marijuana and not know anything about it.
At the time Tommy wrote this book he had no idea that a marijuana clone cloned from a female would become a female, a very valuable reason for cloning. Reading his section on cloning, you can see he has little experience with cloning and frankly dosent know what hes talking about, and sort of makes things up as he goes along. Here is a phrase directly from his book... "The downside is that in most cases with most growers, most clones die before they grow roots and become new plants. I've tried using rooting compounds, not using them, different soil combinations, etcetera. My personal success rate with clones runs about 7 percent, so if I start twenty clones, it's with the expectation that only one or two will survive, and if I'm lucky one of those will be female." pg. 131 This is one of many things written in this book that are bunk.
Tommy if you ever get a chance to read this, please dont compare yourself with most growers because my success rate for cloning is closer to 90%(sometimes even 100%) and, oh yeah! theyre all females, because I clone from female plants.

Format: Paperback
I picked this book up the other day at the mall just thinking a little extra reading in my collection wouldn't hurt. This is my third book on growing I've bought so far and it is by far the worst book ever written on growing. You would seriously have better luck just winging it than actually taking this guy's advice. His advice for quick drying buds is to put them in a plastic bag and stomp around on them for a while. He also suggests to use Miracle Gro which retains water like crazy. I'm not sure why this guy wrote this book, maybe it was supposed to be a joke, but please do not take it seriously. It reads like one of those old Zoo Books you would use to write essays on polar bears in elementary school. Quite pathetic.

don't waste you time. i thumbed through this book at the mall. He says it's perfectly fine to microwave or bake you buds to dry then. I would love to meet the idiot who actually did this and thought they had a quality product. what a joke. this book is dangerous for newbies.

This is seriously the WORST and I cannot stress this enough, the WORST book I've ever read concerning marijuana growing. Do not purchase this book. I bought this book at a local book store in the search of new information, there is nothing here but regurgitated myths and just plain bad advice and practices.

Let me say if you're looking for real information, scientific, time tested and generally undisputed facts look at my simple list here;
1. Ed. Rosenthal's marijuana grower's handbook.
2. The cannabis grow bible by Greg Green (second edition)
3. Marijuana horticulture by Jorge Cervantes (Although number 3 is somewhat out of date it is still vastly superior to this book.)

You shouldn't dry marijuana in the microwave or in the oven, yes it will dry, but marijuana needs time to cure and undergo a chemical change into the psychoactive state. You are wasting your marijuana if you do this!

Do not for gods sake use miracle grow! It's a nasty synthetic chemical and why would you want to ingest that crap? Grow stores are all over the place now days in michigan, where this author is from... there are organic materials that are much safer and quite easy to get ahold of.

Of all the books I have seen on this topic, this is the best! It is comprehensive, explains how to anticipate and fix problems and discusses the different ways to grow pot. Growing for personal medicinal use, I wanted something easy to understand and follow. This book gives me everything I need to know!

Tommy McCarthy's Growing Marijuana takes a very thorough and organized approach to the art of cultivating a successful crop. I am not sure what other customers are talking about--this book is full of photos and visual aids. Because there seems to be some confusion on this issue, I have added a visual component to this review to prove otherwise. This book is full of useful information and worth checking out if you are interested in cultivating your own marijuana.
