Perhaps a lot of information, but poorly organized and not indexed so very difficult to use. Also limited in the types of plants (and some not relevant for Canada, like bananas and avocado).

The "What Is Wrong With My..." series is extremely helpful, because it contains loads of photographs. So many times, books mention diseases and pests, but never supply photos. Google image searches take time and often don't give good answers. This book could use a greater diversity of images though, rather than one image per health issue. For example, the authors might show picture of the type of damage a pest insect causes, but not always a picture of the insect itself.
