Brown fancies himself a great botanist, but this book looks like it was put together for a high school biology project. It is totally lacking in quality, from the frequent typos to incorrect page numbers. Additionally, his promotion of his taxonomically useless form names smacks of self promotion. And the drawings! Frankly they are just bad. I defy anyone to correctly ID a Spiranthes or Platanthera based on the drawings found in this book.

Brown seems to have problems IDing the plants himself as the picture used for Spiranthes x intermedia is the same EXACT picture used for one of its parents, Spiranthes lacera var. gracilis! Come on! Wasn't there an editor on this book? Shouldn't an author who views himself as god's gift to orchids have caught this? Or are his ID skills just that poor?

Also, the main picture of Spiranthes parksii doesn't even have the plant in focus (the background is in focus).

Over all, this book is just sloppy. Yes, much of the distribution information appears to be valid, but given the poor quality of the book as a whole, it's suspect by association.

Perhaps if Brown didn't push out what is essentially the same book modified several times for different geographic regions of the country, and actually took the time to make a quality product, his work would actually be of some use.
