***** Good on you guys from the! land of the kangaroo...
Mel Frank's contribution to the cannabis literature world is good but fails to grasp what a grow book should be about. Basically this book describes what cannabis is, where it can grow and how it grows. Unfortunately it does actually explain in detail how it is done but simply dictates the cannabis cycle both indoors and outdoors by talking about the different stages of growth in each environment. This is done by addressing cannabis in a series of chapters which briefly cover history, species type, techniques, harvesting, curing and smoking.
This book is not a grow book which is a common misconception about it. It is an overview of cannabis from the perspective of Mel's experiences with the plant and what he has learned through studying the plant and it`s life cycle. The chapters are not as deep as one would like them to be (expect chapters that only last a couple of pages on a vast topic such as species type, cloning, making seeds).
The idea behind this kind of book is that it should back up it's concepts and views with references to actual experiments and garden designs. You will not find them here in this book. If you are looking for a full analysis of the cannabis plant and gardening designs (which is extremely important if you want to learn about HID light systems, hydroponics etc. ) then you should try out books like - "The Cannabis Grow Bible: The definitive guide to growing marijuana for recreational and medial use" by Greg Green or "Indoor Marijuana Horticulture - The Indoor Bible" by Jorge Cervantes. As many of the other reviewers have correctly pointed out - this book is old and even the revised edition is old. So do not expect to find any of the new growing methods (or new equipment!) in this book. Times have changed and this book has not. Can anyone here say that they would use a grow guide that is over a quarter of a century old to conduct a growing project? Many have done so but no one in the 21st century would consider it. The reality is that there are many new and better books on the market.
For example, the problem with Mel Frank's work is that there is an extremely limited botanical foundation to his work. Some of the concepts like force flowering are now void and replaced by a more correct approach to calyx development. The nutrient advice is not as solid as it is today and cloning techniques are very different. Where and how to get seeds is not covered. Also it fails to hit home with extremely important points like - obtaining good genetics is a primer to getting good yields! People will not be impressed with bag seed by any means. There are so many important areas not covered in this book and they are extremely important to know about.
Do not let this review put you off buying this book though. We all have it because it is an oldie. My advice is to get something new as well so that you can keep up with the times and produce better results. Also you can compare this book with the new ones and see the difference for yourself.
