For those just starting out, this is as good as it gets. Good for the beginner, but contains information useful to the more experienced. If you get hooked on this hobby, it shows how to set up your own lab without breaking the bank. The bibliography and list of supply sources will let you go as far as you want.

This book contains everything that you need to know to start cloneing plants. Some of the material is geared more towards comericial operations but there is a lot for the hobbiest too. I thought that it could have been organized a little better. The authors talk about equipment and media before they go through the cloning process. Parts of it will be boring unless you are planing to actually culture plants. For example there are several step by step lists on how to preform transfers etc.

The presentation of the book is very nice.It's written in a way that most person with some limited sciences background will understand with no trouble at all.Book is very well designed, by chapters from early discoveries to the most advance techniques, and still easy to completly understand and follow procedures without any problems. Language is very simple and clear, and is not boring at all.Author has a good way of describing and teaching the subject, and have a way of keeping interested in reading and doing the practical side of the experiments.
Will highly recomend.I;m very happy in owning this book.

This book will introduce you to not only the history but the nuts and bolts, logistics and mechanics of Micropropagation. I personally found it an invaluable resource to get me started. I can now confidently buy other books that hold specific data and experiments that I wish to pursue with the background knowledge and techniques I learnt here.

I wanted to learn about micro propagation of plants for waste water reclamation and this book saved me from going back to school after another degree. It is nearly as complete on the subject as one book can be for the beginner.

Certainly one of the better books I have read on this subject. Very descriptive and scientific. One downfall to the book and to the whole idea of tissue culture is the massive costs of lab equipment and growing media. Very well written book though, and a good starter book.
