What this book will teach you has nothing earth shattering : organic fertilizers are better suited for your garden ; alright I've already heard that.
But to go to that conclusion you are shown the inner workings of plants at cellular level, even at molecular level.
I've read some book that tried to give the gardener some science and botanical basis about plants but not as entertaining and enlightenning as this one.
I've finally understood why ions were so important in chemistry and in biology, why nitrogen is so hard to extract from air, how the fluids are going up and down inside stems ...
This book is a must have for those who care to know more about the science side of gardening ; another point : excellent paper quality with hardcover and enough pictures and photos to help you follow the text.
I've put only four stars because at the end you still want to know more :)
