I would suggest that if you really want to read this book, check it out from the library or borrow it from a friend. You may find yourself very disappointed with its contents. The best part about the book is the colorful cover, actually.
The book was not a complete waste of money, however. It will make an excellent stabilizer for the bad leg of my office chair or a nice surface to mix paints on, and I might occasionally use it as a door stop. That's a lot of value for $12.21 .
The low point in the book is definitely the 'contribution' of 'botanist' Gillian Schultz. The book went from mildly interesting to utterly boring and unprofessional really fast. I think Mathews would have done a much better job without the second author.
Just my opinion.
