What You Don't Know About Plants Can Kill You, Make You High, Get You Arrested, and Bring Excrutiating Pain

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities (Gebundene Ausgabe)
"I went past the field of the sluggard,
past the vineyard of the man who lacks judgment;
thorns had come up everywhere,
the ground was covered with weeds,
and the stone wall was in ruins." -- Proverbs 24:30-31
Wicked Plants is a great combination of helpful information about harmful plants and good story telling. Both are valuable to people who wouldn't know one plant from another if they fell into them (until stuck full of thorns or inadvertently poisoned).
When I visit people for the first time who have small children and pets, I'm always astonished to see rooms and yards full of poisonous plants located where they are easily available to inquiring mouths and teeth. When I point out the problem, the so-called adults usually tell me that I can't be right. A few minutes on the Internet quickly causes a major plant remodeling of the house and yard.
I've also walked full of yards filled with marijuana plants being cultivated by the youngsters in the family while the parents remain blissfully ignorant of their crop's potential.
This book will help you overcome any such ignorance that you have.
But I do have a caution: If whoever prepares your food isn't too happy with you, don't leave this book lying around . . . it's full of potentially lethal advice for poisoning you.
The book's main weakness is that if you don't already know these plants you may not be able to recognize them from the drawings. I suggest you look up color photographs on the Internet as you read the books.
Well done, Ms. Stewart!
