I've been gardening seriously for the last several years, devouring all the gardening books I can get my hands on. I've read a lot, and for the most part, they are all identical. It's as if the authors all just use the same template and material and they are all pretty basic. This one is different...
Once you get past the basic "how to" intro books, there's little out there. I have found that this book helps when Ive had a particular problem or had a less than successful harvest of a particular crop. It serves as a nice reference for an intermediate gardener like me. It's 1 of 3 of my "go to" books.
I'm not knocking the basic books. If you're just starting up, there's a couple out there that are better than the rest. Reading one of these will get you going in the right direction. Then, this book will hopefully, help you as it's helped me when I've run into issues I can't figure out on my own.
I've rated it 4 stars just because it didn't make me say, "Wow, this has all the answers!" But, it's still a great resource.
