Very enlightening read about how nutritious common weeds can be. My only complaint is that it covers a small handful of weeds and I would've liked to learn about more, as there are many that grow near me and aren't listed as edible or inedible. The inedible section is also quite short. Each weed has quite a lot of explanation and information, so it is very useful for those weeds included. There are some recipes as well but my main interest is in finding out what's edible and what isn't. Although it's called a "handbook" it's not a field guide, just a list of weeds, one after the other, with information like their nutritional benefits and whether any special preparation is required before eating them (e.g. some need to be boiled first).
