I was a bit skeptical when purchasing this book due to some of the more critical reviews, but in hindsight I’m glad I did. The book did have some layout issues that I noticed that were noted in some of the negative reviews, but they didn’t make the book unreadable. This review might get a little lengthy, but I read this book from cover to cover and want to give it a fair assessment. This review is for the 3rd edition.
This book contains over 700 pages, with all new photos and step-by-step guides to every aspect of marijuana horticulture, plant breeding, and hash production. Featuring a handy quick start guide at the beginning to allow growers to get started right away, and hone their techniques as they read the later chapters in more detail. The biggest, most comprehensive, and straightforward guide to marijuana horticulture ever published.
Like most grow "bibles" on the market today, this book covers a ton of information. So much information in fact, that it can become contradictory when many different opinions on cultivation are introduced. Everyone does things a little bit different, so it’s important to keep that in mind while reading this book. Completely green growers (pun intended) always want some kind of text that they can reference that has all the answers. In my opinion, such a text has never been compiled, and no amount of reading will really replace real experience and garden time.
The most comprehensive guide to marijuana gardening ever written is back with all new information and updated advice for cannabis enthusiasts. Over 200 additional pages of all new information are included in this book, from all new lighting equipment and techniques, to highly advanced cannabinoid extraction techniques and detailed, step-by-step gardening guides for novice and professional growers alike.
Consistently this book is my go-to resource for information on growing marijuana and information on cannabis botany. It is an invaluable book.” —S.T. Oner, author of Marijuana Outdoor Grower’s Guide and Marijuana Chef Cookbook

Don’t get me wrong, the book has useful information, some of which is more advanced than I care to know at this point (breeding, etc.), but the information that is supposed to be most useful is sporadically placed about and not able to remember because he jumps around a lot and definitely misses things that are important to know. Which brings me to my next point. Not enough pictures to describe the most important things being described, but sure are plenty of random pictures of some good looking bud. with no relevant context of the surrounding text. The diagrams of the plants that do exist are not very good and lack key part identifications being described in the text. Throughout the read I often said, ” I wish there was a diagram that showed this, because I don’t know what he is talking about”.
I really did my research on this and took a long time to decide which book to buy. It was a crapshoot between each book being considered, but I chose this one because it appeared more professional. After reading this entire book and looking through to stages relevant as my cannabis grows, I am left wanting, so I end up looking up things online after all.
