I did not rate it because I think it depends on what you would want from this book. It does not delve into relationships to other plants, insects & animals, nor very specific growing conditions. That is fine. It is just to help identify wildflowers. That said, it is much too broad to be very useful, in my estimation. There are listed 160 species including a few non-native like Red Clover (book doesn't claim native only) - coast to coast - and most of us who are interested in identifying would be more helped by region. If I visit regions outside of where I live - midwest - I would want more specific to that area. So, it's a nice little overview but doesn't really meet useful standards for me.
