By comparison to the other two books I must note that this one in particular offers quite detailed written information, although I happen to care less for the informative part but rather the imagery contrast. When I buy books of the type I but them for their images not for the text, and images don't miss here either. The book also concentrates on the landscape of the country. There are quite many interesting images to view, although in my opinion, some of them lack technical precision as the images appear a little grainy and/or slightly out of focus.
If loving gardens were a sin, I'd go straight to hell. Gardeners have their likes and dislikes but I'd challenge any gardener not to find someting to take their fancy in this book. As for non-gardeners, well, just buy it anyway, because the plates and text are so, so good. To paraphrase Omar Khayyam: " . . . a cup of tea, a book about Moroccan gardens . . . and gardens are Paradise enow".
