It's a unique perspective but pictures lackingReviewed in the United Kingdom on 7 January 2020
A bit disappointed as half the plants mentioned do not have a image to go with the description so I find myself having to Google everything which kinda defeats the purpose of getting book on houseplants. The pictures that are in the book are mostly arty over substance showing a leaf rather than the whole actual plant. Good points are the how to care for your plant descriptions are informative and clear and the way the plants are divided up by what they do aka clean the air is quite interesting.

THE HEALING POWER OF PLANTSReviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 September 2019
It is the only book I found that writes about this topic - THE HEALING POWER OF PLANTS and the recent studies from NASA that demonstrates how the plants helps to clean the air and which ones are the best for that + many other benefits that plants bring in our lives + many pictures. I would love reading even more books with this topic if I find.The reason I give it a 4 * because even if it talks about many plants, their requirements and how to take care of them, I would”ve loved to read more general information about each plant. Other than that I LOVE THIS BOOK !
