An excellent guide for novice or expert

Tropical Orchids of Southeast Asia is an outstanding little book regardless of the level of expertise of the reader. It's strongest point has to be the 133 sharp, clean, color-saturated photographs of orchids in 17 genera, some of which are rarely, if ever, seen in other books.

A three-page introduction encapsulates the basics of these intriguing plants, and a map on the back cover shows the area covered in the book.I rate this one four stars instead of five simply because I wanted more! Its 64 pages just weren't enough for me. This is one you want to own.
