It gives you pretty much everything you need, lays it out in very understandable fashion, and is a relatively short book so it's not too hard to get through. If you are interested in microprop at home and want to learn how it's done--this will give you the knowledge you need to pull it off.

If you are looking for advance knowledge for a specific species you are trying to microprop, this is likely not the book for you unless your just starting out--it's very good for learning what microprop is, how it works, and all the basics. Something I've learn from my research though is that even very similar plants (to varieties of the same species) the recipe to microprop can be VERY different.

But if your buying this to play around at home, make new plants from ones you already have, or investigate what Microprop is--I highly recommend this book.

The book is a textbook intended for horticultural students. It assumes very little prior knowledge, even presenting high school chemistry. Various protocols are described for cloning different varieties of plants. The book does not assume the reader will have a complete laboratory for experiments (though it does address the needs of those who do). The language is relatively free of jargon, but does require serious study. Would guess it is used in various horticultural programs carried on in land grant universities.
