Disappointing not just for some of the choices but for the presentation. Frequently on 2 facing pages 3 gardens will be written up with only 1 photo among them. Also, the term garden is not really the American version. I have been lucky enough to visit a number of the choices and some choices in the book seem more like parks with trees as the only plantings while other selections are historic buildings with good settings but not gardens. The book title attracts attention but there must be better overview books than this.
