From Library Journal:

Thailand's temperate climate allows the gardener to grow a wide range of plants, yet heavy rains and frequent flooding often present challenges. This work offers a stunning tour of over 30 public and private Thai gardens whose owners have overcome these obstacles and wisely used their native flora to create lush retreats. The book begins with a brief cultural history of Thailand that examines how garden styles evolved, but the bulk of the book profiles individual gardens at resorts, hotels, and private residences in Bangkok, southern Thailand, and the cooler regions to the north. Tettoni's stunning photography is the highlight of the book, with over 250 images ranging from close-ups of specific plants to expansive garden vistas. Warren, a noted authority on Thai gardens, concludes with a section on his career as a garden designer in Thailand. This book will appeal to anyone who is interested in tropical gardens or Thai culture and is essential for libraries with strong horticultural collections.?Phillip Oliver, Univ. of North Alabama Lib., Florence

From Booklist:

The people of Thailand are considered by many travelers to project an inner beauty, one that manifests itself in an exceedingly gracious and generous demeanor. Tettoni's photographs offer stunning panoramas, alluring vignettes, and detailed views of flowers and foliage that echo this notion as they attest to the serene, inviting atmosphere Thai gardens emanate. Warren's text describes 30 diverse settings that demonstrate the lush, fecund quality of garden style in the Bangkok area, the warm southern climes dominated by the sea, and more mountainous northerly locales. Warren, who has lived in Thailand for years and designed numerous gardens, has the irrepressible spirit of a zealous gardener. He devotes the book's final section to delightful reminiscences and to sharing planting and design ideas from his own fount of knowledge. Alice Joyce
