What a gem of a book! Your everyday general vegey growing book is anchored in temperate climates and focuses on what you can grow. This book moves to the tropics -- and sub tropics (where I live) and addresses the question of what I can't grow. That means what you can grow is given the attention it deserves.

The hot wet season in the Tropics is brutal on the edible flora we are accustomed to in the Western Diet, so you need to adapt your approach and your plantings to work around such harshness.

This is a wonderfully entertaining gardening book. It's written with humour and charm, which makes the advice much easier to take on. I live in a subtropical area, rather than the tropics, but there is plenty of good advice for growing things in our summer.

Super detailed info about growing food in tropical conditions in a fairly low resource-intensive style.
