Growing for Flavour - James Wong

I was given this book by my sister for my birthday & I have to say I'm impressed, he states from the start that he is being biased as to his favourites, but then most books are when it comes recommended varieties. I have found the book easy to read with good hints & tips for increasing flavour of your crops backed up by research, overall I am impressed, though some of his language does come across as a little cocky at times. I know he is not everyone's cup of tea but this book even got my husband interested for once.

He's very knowledgeable but I must admit to finding him rather annoying. I'm not sure if that's his fault or the folk who edit and produce his books/programmes.
