Too often people try to learn plants one-at-a-time, without rhyme or reason. Now you can cut years off the process of learning about plants and their uses. Tom's book helps you beyond the piece-meal approach to botany and herbalism towards a more "whole" approach. Within 1 1/2 hours you can understand the big-picture of botany and herbalism.
Learn how related plants have similar features for identification. Discover how they often have similar properties and similar uses.
Tom's book takes you beyond the details towards a greater understanding of the patterns among plants. By mid-morning you can be in the field, matching flowers to the patterns in the book. Instead of learning plants one-at-a-time you will discover that you can learn them by the dozens just by looking for patterns.
Most plant books cover only one or two hundred species. Botany in a Day includes more than 100 plant families and over 650 genera applicable to many thousands of species.
By the end of the day you will have a functional knowledge of botany. You will be able to continue growing your knowledge of plants and plant patterns in the wild, in your garden, among house plants, even at the florist. Understand the magic of patterns among plants, and the world will never look the same again! [via]
