T. Barnum not very clearly established Is it a coffee table book The text is too technical Is it a text book The text should have been outlined better and included cartoon illustrations Is it an art book Cut way down on the text Is it marketing to provide support for the Millennium Seed Bank Not accessible enough for general readers Is it a book for plant aficionados Maybe but it seems like the seed photographs could have been organized by type or characteristic Lots of pretty pictures but Summary: Astrophysics for People in a Hurry not a very useful book
