Even though I purchased this book for a class, I will be keeping this book in my collection, as it is one of those books that can always be useful, no matter what the situation.
In Master Gardener training classes, we are told that a new, updated edition is coming soon, probably in Spring 2013. Explanation is that the material in this edition, in particular information covering poisons and pesticides, is too outdated to be useful.
Update 4-11. The new Grow Fruit by DK publishing resets the bar for fruit books, while The Vegetable Gardener's Bible, 2nd Edition has been the best vegetable growing resource for awhile.
I highly recommend this wonderful book.
This is an encyclopedia of gardening info, all about gardening in California. (ergo, useless in New Jersey)
When all my other garding books let me down, and Google replies to whatever I'm searching for by saying "Huh?!?!", this book (sometimes) has the answer.
While written for Californians, there is a wealth of basic botanical information the will prove valuable to gardeners all over...well, maybe in neighboring states. As a Tucson gardener, I found loads of valuable information on all aspects of horticulture.
