The author, Linda Yang, has a very amusing and personal writing style and there are alot of good tips about soil and light. I found her discussion urban microclimates most interesting. She does try to address a number of gardening situtations, from the rooftop terrace to a few pots on the fire escape. But I can't say this is the only book on small-space gardening you will ever need.
