We have grown a vegetable garden every year for over 35 years now. So we have a lot of experience. But it's always good to learn new techniques and tips, and I definitely found a few new ideas in this book. I liked the section on crop rotation. The individual vegetable sections is very good. And this is one main-stream vegetable gardening book that actually addresses the benefits of companion planting, which is something we've practiced for more than 2 decades now (and yes, it really does work).
There is a nod to Square Foot gardening in the section about raised beds, but if you really want to get into SF garden, please order that specific book, as the little section in this one is too general. All in all, this is a REALLY good book to get anyone who is interested a wonderful start in vegetable gardening. My only "huh" moment was the recipe section -not sure why it's in there, but I guess it isn't hurting anything. I have the book as a Kindle edition. It reads GREAT on the PC, and pretty good on my droid [but the tables are wonky]. I haven't dragged out the actual Kindle to look at it yet. I'm sure the paper book is fine, too - I just like electronics.
