    Is it 200+ pages as most sites are saying, or 400+ pages mentioned on Amazon.com ?

    The book is physically much larger and printed on high quality paper. It is a good coffee table book. I don't know how they compare as far as word count. I think they are good companion books as Barry went into some more details on plants that didn't get as much attention in Peter's book, perhpas because of the fact they didn't exist in cultivation when the book was printed or were so rare it might not have made sense.

    The book is worth it for the pictures alone. One is labeled as never having appeared in print before.

    Concerning amazon.com; adnedarn said he ordered his Thursday, 21Sep06. I ordered mine Friday, 22Sep06. I was quite anxious to get my copy since Barry was coming to visit Saturday, 30Sep06, to see my collection and I was hoping to get him to autograph it. Well, adnedarn received his on Monday, 25Sep06. It is now Sunday, 1Oct06, Barry has come and gone and I have yet to receive my copy of his book. adnedarn and I both paid the same, used the same shipping method, yet have had completely different experiences.
