I feel if I can get to grips with the 48 common plants discussed in this book, I'll be a step closer to being able to knowing the environment around me on my walks.While I have a huge interest in such things and appreciate his efforts, he's not took into consideration that we don't know what the plants he's taking about look like and he's not put this book together in a detailed manner; it's just sort of thrown together. Instead of providing a snapshot for each plant, Harford gives a link to a database of pictures which give a more indepth photography for each plant and a better resource for identification. However, the fact there were no images or illustrations really ruined it for me - it was hard to immerse myself in the book when I had to google every plant to see what it looked like.
