Thank you for this informative and helpful book!

A great read for a long overdue topic

Best written coverage of this topic I have seen so far, however I would have preferred if the recipe ideas were a separate chapter for easier reference. Under 'wattles' it says there are a few toxic species - it would be great if they listed these; perhaps in a later addition they could add a chapter on 'plants to avoid' or those that require particular preparation to make them non-toxic. Although they could be found online, colour photos of all species specifically referred to would have been nice. I think there may also be a few typos. That said it's a great read, inspiring and encouraging, and long overdue. Awesome!

I'm not unhappy with my purchase but buying a book online based on the cover is almost always a disappointment
