To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat for readers. More in depth and informative, less illustration.

Lots of detail... more for the 'reader' less for a casual 'almanac story' enthusiast. Reads like a continuous novel versus many "quick tip" nature books. Would do well with some added illustrations... but VERY informative!
This is British. Not as helpful for Canada and Britain. However, I was able to get some things out of it. Had I known it was British, I probably would not have purchased. What little I can apply to Canada is not worth the price of the book. Not going to return it though as it is interesting . . . and one never knows when a trip to Britain comes up! lol
I thought I was really going to love his book. I am a nature person but I didn’t connect with it. Partly because I don’t think it was meant for someone living in the western U.S. Hopefully it’s very helpful for those who live in the area he seems to be describing.
I started reading this a few days ago. I’ve learned a little bit, the author continuously repeats himself saying to “pay attention to nature and things around you” almost every couple pages and the book jumps around a little bit. It’s a good read, I’m eager to learn more.
Yes he knows a lot. The book is a tiresome read to me as I am more interested in (get to the point) condensed writing styles. He could make his points with a book 1/2 it’s length. With that said many people will love his story telling and enthusiastic style. He brings to light very good information.
Not what I expected. The author is sort of longwinded and the material is very dray. Began reading it and after a few pages, I put it back down. That was about.....6 weeks ago??? It's now gathering dust.
