Very easy to read. Good information.
In some cases little information. A lot of photographs are of the emerged plant.
It is a very good and recommendable book if you are new in planted aquariums. It is very graphic and easy to read, and it has good information.
In some cases I found little information about some plants. Also there were a lot of photograph of the emerged form of the plants, but not the submerged form.
