Cole's web-page has some reviews of books that Amazon doesn't. Also,
Chris Frazier's page has (or at least had) a list of cp publications put
up by Ivo Koudela (sorry if I misspelled your name Ivo!).

        L'Ecoufle (sp?) brought out a more 'advanced book' around 1990
(still within your last decade requirement ;)!), but I can't really
recommend it with all the glaring errors in regards to taxonomy. Tony
Camirelli just brought out a new book. I'm waiting for mine to arrive, so
can't really comment on what it's like. I'm assuming you have Peter
D'Amato's book. If not, get it!

        Not always. At least, in Canada, it has been cheaper for me to
order through the local bookstores, rather than through, as I
pay the same price as Amazon advertises, but without the shipping and
handling. Definitely shop around!

        The rest of your questions I can't help you with, sorry!

Happy growing,
