This book fills a great void in any library of field guides for our area. ...excellent introductory material...an essential addition to the library of anyone interested in studying those intriguing "little" plants of both native habitats and gardens. --Washington Park Arboretum Bulletin
This book is comprehensive and probably the only guide the amateur will ever need to gain insights into the mysterious world of mosses, lichens, and ferns. --Borealis Magazine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Actually, illustrations look "washed out" and blurred, comparing to my previous book. Several species have non-representative photos, displaying sporophytes only and giving no idea of leaves appearance. Several photos are just "mess of something green and white specular highlights".
And, comparing with other Bryophyte biology books I have (by British authors) and with "Plants ..." book that does have the mosses chapter, this book lacks botanical drawing of leaves, shoots and other parts. Indeed, text descriptions could be enough if you trying to narrow the ID, but inability to make simple visual comparison, based on detailed drawings, makes recognition of unfamiliar species quite problematic, especially keeping in mind quality of photos.
Anyway, I don't know the alternative, so I have to keep it, but in other case I'd send it back.
