Review "Includes chapters ranging from basic botany and gardening to the different types of grow lights and what it costs to operate them. You can actually produce a tomato indoors that has field-grown flavor and texture. Wonderfully organized and easy to follow." - Rob Rabine, New Haven Register "I like this book a lot. The science is presented clearly and simply, but the practicalities - living with this stuff - are also given. So you'll learn about what spills, what stains, what annoys, what works but is really tiresome, and what's clever and really convenient. All-in-all, a very knowledgeable, easy-reading book." - Chris Wesley "Excellent resource for growing veggies inside. The author doesn't focus on expensive HID systems, but gives affordable DIY projects to grow many different crops inside using fluorescent light systems. Both traditional container planting and hydroponic growing methods are covered." - Beth Grem
