If you had never given a thought about building a greenhouse this might be mildly helpful, but for anyone else you'll find it annoyingly elementary. But critical information is completely absent. For example, ventilation is a key component of greenhouses. Fan or no fan? How much ventilation? How many CFM for a give square foot in a give climate zone? Damper controls? Locations of dampers? Absolutely no guidance is given. Similar vague treatment of pretty much every other topic.

There are many good greenhouse books out there. And lots of free guidance on the web. Spend your resources in those areas.

In this case however, if you want a book that lives up to its mission to tell you everything you need to know in an understandable manner, this isn't the book for you. This is perhaps influenced by the writer whose background doesn't seem to include specific credentials or experience regarding greenhouses.

Lengthy sentences and a pedantic tone reduce the pleasure in reading and learning about your new hobby. Most beginners, for whom this series is designed, will be better served by finding books that area easier to read, faster to absorb and simply more entertaining. Perhaps future editions will benefit from some additional editing. In addition, it would be helpful to have illustrations from a variety of sources rather than primarily from one provider...

I just moved to the mountains and needed a versatile guide that was both easy to understand and gave me alot of choices. This book filled all my needs and offered lots and lots of pictures. I am not a carpenter or a designer just a determined female who now has the tools to build a greenhouse. My neighbor is a carpenter by trade and was also impressed by this book. He keeps borrowing it!!!!! Virginia Hawkins Glennville California
