Not a book you will be likely to read cover-to-cover, but rather a combination of a few introductory chapters that you might read that way, and then the bulk of it a species-by-species look at how to grow that particular plant. The fact that it is focused on how to grow it in the southern United States means that it is often much more relevant and useful to you than most books on gardening, which are focused on a more European-like climate such as the American Northeast or Midwest.

Written in 1986, it's a little heavy on synthetic solutions. However, it is time-tested, generations' worth of solid data for growing food in the climate I live in, with a nice helping of humor on the side including such gems in the glossary as "Cold enough to kill a hog: About the time when frost will damage tender plants, and I consider going to Egypt or some other warmer climate for the winter." (Forgive the paraphrase). Added to my permanent reference library.
