Plants are awe-inspiring. Everyday we are surrounded by these fascinating, endlessly useful organisms, yet somehow manage to constantly overlook them. This book aims to change all that, opening our eyes to how amazing they truly are. Guaranteed to make a plant geek out of anyone. -- James Wong, ethnobotanist, author and TV presenter
