While Raven (Biology of Plants) is the authority in plant anatomy, Taiz is definetly the go-to book for physiology. Immense detail, from cell wall to hormones to nutrient assimilation to stress response. The writing is much more science-y though, not that fluid "lecture style"; it reads more like a compilation of papers.
This book was okay. I've read better biology textbooks, but it wasn't too terrible. There was enough material here for a master's plant biochemistry course- the excruciating detail was...excruciating. With that being said, I thought it did a good job of covering topics and was thorough if nothing else.
