I was disappointed that this book didn't have any artwork whatsoever. It contains 40 different types of plants, each of which gets a block of descriptive text and info on its in-game use/fantastical property. The book is also not very printer-friendly; the cover is what you see in the product image - a greyish leather-like texture - while the pages are all have a heavy-color tea-stained appearance. A lighter colored page would have been nicer, and would help the print stand out better, since it is fairly pale. Don't get me wrong, though, it is not difficult to read or to see the print, just lacking in the contrast department.
The positives for the book, though, are that there aren't many - if any - other botanist-style books like this out there. In my games (I GM pathfinder), I like to incorporate a wide range of different plants, materials, and potential alchemical ingredients, so I am greatful for a new spread of 40 plants. I also like that when I say "plants", I don't just mean herbs and scrubs. The 40 plants are divided between fruits, herbs, trees, vegetables, flowers and mushrooms, so it is a nice mix. The plants are also climate-specific so you don't have to think about environmental continuity. (To make things easy, I actually use climate and terrain-based tables that I roll on when one of my players decides to pay attention to the local flora during their travels.)
