I sure wish that I would have known that before I bought it.
The books title is a little misleading to me because it says "Urban Foraging, Finding and eating wild plants in the city".
I expected more detail and some color pictures for comparison to help me in my quest for Urban Foraging. But then again, I also expected this to be a field guide too.
I know, it doesn't explicitly say "field guide" so I should have known. The thing is, how does one know which of the countless books on Wild Edibles is "the" book they should get. It's maddening with all of the choices one has to choose from.
This is probably a good starter book for someone that does not have access to the internet or a printer and is just getting started. Though I really don't think it is worth $18. Maybe more like $5 - $8.
If you don't know some of the basics and want some easy reading to pass the time while you are out and about in the streets, take this along. Just don't pay too much for it.
