If you have never pruned a thing in your life, it may be OK. Otherwise, it is a waste. You'd be much better off checking online or YouTube to get some info on the specific plants you intend to prune.
It's an engaging read that makes you want to keep going and it presents the information in such a simple way that it would be difficult to see why anyone would make improper cuts after reading it.
I recommend this book to students and horticulture enthusiasts who want to learn more about pruning.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I prefer hard bound books for longer life. This will become a reference book for years to come, and whoever inherits my gardening books will appreciate it too. (even if it comes apart from use...)
Well worth the money IMO.
