"Pretty handy for those who don't want to translate vegetable growing into California-speak. Splan covers them all and tells you when, how and where to plant every kind of edible, including herbs"-- Dirt Du Jour
"Claire's writing style, along with her gardening experience, will help California gardeners understand the quirky nature of growing in the Golden State. Just like the book says, 'It's the next best thing to having a master gardener as your neighbor.'" -- Jodi Torpey, VegetableGardener.com

This book is about the same size and emphasis as the one by Beaver but a little less expensive.
The look inside feature gives a very good sense of the coverage and arrangement but no sense of a sample entry for a given plant.
Each entry has a nice color picture with introductory information as part of a two page spread with consistent subheads like When to Plant, Where to Plant, How to Plant, Care and Maintenance, Harvesting, and Additional Information.
It is a nicely illustrated and written guide available for inspection at many California libraries.
Index, glossary and short annotated bibliography. Recommended.
But that was before I bought this book!
