Not Much Love
This book and it's companion "Carrots Love Tomatos" was a big disappointment to me. I was hoping this book would have more in-depth information regarding companion planting but it's basically a book that lists in alphabetical order flowers, their characteristics, and sometimes what is a good companion in the garden (but not always). This book also talks about herbs in the same manner as flowers, has some garden plans, and other information regarding insect pests, uses for flowers, etc.
If you want more useful information regarding companion planting I suggest "Great Garden Companions" by Sally Jean Cunningham. There's more detail and recommended layouts in a garden setting.

More whimsy than factual
This book is not one I would recommend for someone who is looking for "how-to" directions. Ms. Riotte provides some interesting ideas, but not enough to plan a flower garden.
