"Northeast gardeners should consider this a specific 'must.'" --The Midwest Book Review
"[W]ritten exclusively for those of us who live in this region of acidic soils, sultry summers, wintry mixes, twisters, hurricanes, nor'easters and, my new favorite, wind events. The Shady Lady is bossy, as well she should be. Just tell us what to do: We need help!"--New York Times Book Review

"The Shady Lady's Guide to Northeast Shade Gardening by Amy Ziffer aims to help gardeners take advantage of not-so-sunny spots. A gallery of reliable perennials paired with close-up photographs forms the heart of the book. Ziffer defines the categories of shade, then divides listed plants into those that do well in deep shade and those that prefer lighter shade. More lists in the appendices group plants by use and zone. "The American Gardener"

"For gardeners this is a fine guide to the shade garden, and Ziffer's style is funny and opinionated, which is what you want in a gardening book or at least I do, since many gardening tomes, while useful, can be dry to read. A tour through The Shady Lady's Guide to Northeast Shade Gardening will have you looking at the shady spots in your garden with anticipation, rather than What-do-I-do-here bafflement." "Valley News""

The focus of the book is, of course, shade gardens. As such, the plant section is divided by deep shade and light shade. And then from there broken down in order: backbone plants, accent plants, spring ephemerals, bulbs, ferns for border use, and ferns best for naturalizing. This is very different from so many books that just list the plants alphabetically by latin name.
Although there are little to no pictures for most of the description areas, each of the plants in the plant section has a picture for easier identification. Each entry has zone info, latin name, common name, and thorough information that a gardener needs to know about the plant (tips, tricks, problems, benefits, etc.).
The last 20 pages include resource info such as plants that are native to North America, plants by USDA zone, plants that grow well in both shade and sun, moist area plants, plants for rock gardens, groundcovers, and places to go for more information.
This is definitely a 5 star book. And yet, I hope in future editions there will be shade garden examples for inspiration. The book is sorely lacking in images that show the plants together, garden plan examples, and the artistic side of gardening.
