    A Complete Tome of Knowledge

    This is a great book for novice or expert. From germ to harvest Ed covers it all in great detail. No wonder it is an Oaksterdam text book, it is a fountain of knowledge that is easily read. The photographs are beautiful and numerous and there are many graphs and drawings to compliment the information given in every chapter. I highly recommend this book.
