This is a great book, but a book more focused on gardening in general may be a better starter. Perhaps The Beginner's Guide to Urban Gardening: A Simple, Practical Guide to Creating Your Own Bountiful Indoor Garden would be more appropriate for a potential gardener who is breaking into the idea of gardening in a limited space.
The book also spends considerable time on decorative ideas for gardening, which may not be appropriate for a person with very limited space. Once again, a book focused solely on urban gardening would be excellent.
I purchased the book via my Kindle, and found the format to be entirely satisfactory. In some cases Kindle editions of books may not the easiest to navigate, but I found no problems with this particular work.
In all though, this book is an indispensable reference for a person who is familiar with gardening, and is attempting to sharpen their skills with container gardening and decoration. I learned quite a bit from this book, and would definitely recommend it!
