The format is by far the most friendly I've found, laid out in an easy to follow consistent format, with lovely color photographs. The information is comprehensive without being overwhelming and the writing style, like his seminars, is highly engaging and personal - a fun read as well as educational. Since I intend to follow the Mel Bartholomew Square Foot Gardening method, some of the information (such as in regards to thinning plants) don't apply, but the great majority of this book is very consistent with square foot gardening (such as raised beds, the emphasis on good soil, etc.) and if you are considering square foot gardening this book is a great complement to that.
I'm not entirely sure why one reviewer here found the book to be too simple. This is not a children's book. The information on soil, nutrients, pest control, and all the individual plants - when to plant, how to plant, etc. is as I said quite comprehensive. Yes, it's an easy read but that is a testimony to good writing - it has not been "dumbed down."
As a side note the book itself is a high quality, attractive book that would make a very nice gift for a gardening friend.
