"The authoritative text is crisply written in [a] delightfully erudite, yet easily accessible, style .... A lucid and complete section on orchid nomenslature prepares the neophyte for the onslaught of unfamiliar Latin names by explaining the scientific system for naming plants and illustrating its benefits .... Photographically, the book is a godsend to the serious orchid grower .... [A] worthy addition to any personal horticultural library and the perfect gift for an orchid-loving friend."
—Joseph Levine, Horticulture (from a review of the first edition)
