    NO! Don't buy that book unless you want to support an infamous poacher. Not only that, but it's an outdated book anyway. Who'd want to put a penny in that man's soiled pocket?

    I will GIVE you my old (about 12 years old... VERY used lmao) copy if you promise not to buy a new one! Got it when I was six.

    so Savage Garden is a big NO NO...

    That is my main concern looking for a book, even if is a new edition that dont ensure the content has been updated and corrected, some autors and publishing houses are just happy when the book go out to the shelf$ and don't care no more to update.

    WHOOPS! I should have been more specific! The Savage Garden is great, and Peter D'amato is NOT a poacher. He's a great guy. Carnivorous Plants of the World is a big No No and the man that wrote that isn't so great....

    The Savage Garden = good
    Carnivorous Plants of the World = bad

    Wait! We are still mistaken here, lol. Carnivorous Plants of the World is written by by James and Patricia Pietropaolo, not Barry Rice. You can see some comments about the "ethics" of the authors in the Amazon reviews in that link. It's easy to get confused as the many carnivorous plant books have uncreative titles.

    Barry is most definitely not a poacher.
