just got my copy(along with Taylor's Utricularia monograph)
after a quick glance through
for general referance: great companion book to the Savage garden. dont think one is better than the other so far but im glad i have both.
what i like: photographs are EXCELLENT. also if your interested in Genilsia, Barry's beats Peters book hands down. really like the way the Utrics are broke out into the sections(per Taylor) the Heli section has species Peter didnt(they werent around when Peter wrote his i believe)
general comments: less on Nepenthes and Sarrs than Peter's book but i like the way Barry lists all the Neps and arranges them based on location which makes an easy quick referance. he seperates the Drosera the same way. all in all i would be hard pressed to recommend one over the other. definatly reccomend getting both.
BTW i only had to wait a week for my copy, whats taking you guys?
