Revue de presse :

At last we have a book written in English which looks at some of the best agaves, both species and cultivars, which can be grown in containers or outdoors in the ground where climate permits...As you are aware, agaves can change dramatically as they age and this guide takes that into account as it includes pictures showing each species from youth to maturity- a unique and valuable feature of the book and a great help with identification...I would thoroughly recommend this book to all cactus and succulent enthusiasts whether they are interested in agaves or not. --Literature Review (CactusWorld Vol. 30 (3))
