"I would like to begin by stating…this is an excellent, well-written text. Virtually all of this text is up-to-date and theoretically sound… The text does an excellent job at describing the practices in more detail."
"The project's three greatest strengths are the use of illustrations (with a few minor modifications, in some instances), the accompanying easy to understand text, and the author's compelling, supported reasons for making his pruning recommendations."
