Can this book really be that bad? I can always find something of value in even the poorest books that justify $10 of information learned. . . this is first book I've ever bought that truly says nothing. Save your $10 and spend 5 minutes doing a Google search instead.
The book is listed as 26 pages. One of the 26 is the title page and another is the copyright information leaving 24 pages of book. Of the 24 remaining pages six of them are COMPLETELY BLANK (see attached picture). I'd estimate 50% of the space in the book is blank. Even the pages with text and pictures have much blank space and things blown up to mask the lack of material to fill wasted space. This reminded me of when I had to write a 10 page term paper in high school and wrote larger than normal and left extra blank space in the margin just to stretch five pages of information into a 10 page report.
If all the blank space was eliminated the 'book' could have been made much smaller so it could be carried in a back pocket into the woods and be used as a field guide.
The one plant that fools me most is Virginia Creeper. Attached is the entire section in this book on Virginia Creeper. . . REALLY! You can decide for yourself if this is helpful and worthwhile. The plant in the picture at the bottom of page 4 does not even look like Virginia Creeper to me. Look at the leaf shape, how fine the serrations are, and the serrations in the leaf appear to go all the way down the leaf. This is confusing me more than it is helping. If this is Virginia Creeper the book should be clear on why it is and help eliminate confusion for people like myself.
Very little information that is not well organized or explained simply isn't helpful for me.
