The preface refers to RosenthalĂs other publications and articles, and to his status as an expert witness in US courts. "His down home, humorous style is appealing to the average pothead as well as the government officials responsible for enforcing the countryĂs drug laws. People on both sides of the issue welcome his work."

Comment: This book is written in simple language, and is one of the least technical of RosenthalĂs works. There are many black & white photos, but few diagrams. It is certainly dated in relation to his more recent works. It is not a step-by step guide, so much as a disjointed series of pieces on aspects of growing cannabis, and of more general interest.
