This book is written in simple language, and is one
of the least technical of RosenthalĂs works. There are
many black & white photos, but few diagrams. It
is certainly dated in relation to his more recent works.
It is not a step-by step guide, so much as a disjointed
series of pieces on aspects of growing cannabis, and
of more general interest.
