From Publishers Weekly:

Orchids are not the easiest plants to grow, but for serious gardeners, preferably those with a greenhouse, the Rittershausens describe in detail the many requirements for success; while encouraging amateurs, though, this book is clearly aimed toward the experienced. The rather dry text is more then compensated for by a multitude of photographs, both black-and-white and color. In fact, the pictures really tell the story, with text captioning the illustrations. With a subject as diverse as orchids, which grow naturally in almost every part of the world, and whose needs are as different as their origins, the Rittershausens have managed to convey their expertise to those who are looking for a demanding but rewarding challenge.

From Library Journal:

Two internationally known orchid growers have written a practical and understandable book on growing orchids. Their experience with orchids in England and a no-nonsense style of writing make this a valuable presentation of orchid-growing techniques and information. Large photos dominate the book; those in the sections on the propagating and potting of different orchid species are especially effective. Both novice and experienced grower will find this book useful. Recommended. Dale Luchsinger, formerly with Agnes Scott Coll. Lib., Athens, Ga.
