This is the most entertaining and understandable Plant Biology textbook available. Undoubtedly, the most accurate textbook on the market. It is the only Biology textbook that also explains, in detail, traditional and modern plant growing, form, and production. Also it explains what is happening to plants through molecular techniques. Hooray! Major thanks to Dr. G. Hacisalihoglu for providing a reasonably-priced textbook and website that help students learn.

As someone who thoroughly enjoys botany and learning about exotic plants, this book seems like a perfect match. I've personally had the author as a professor and his passion is only matched by his drive to truly educate his students in the world of plants. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to further understand the world of plants

'From Growing to Biology: Plants' was more essential to my future occupation than I expected. Dr. Hacisalihoglu's way of formatting the information engages the reader by providing us with the fundamental structures of a plant, but then going into depth by analyzing each structure and the smaller components within these organisms. Dr. Haciasalihoglu continued active engagement throughout this informational textbook by comparing the importance of the plant or structure to bigger picture projects. This textbook definitely exposed me to the importance of certain plants in medicine and how they are also vital in research; for example, I have started taking Ginkgo Biloba, because I learned Ginkgo serves as a memory enhancer. All in all, this book provided me with a great deal of new information, and I would recommend this textbook to everyone simply because plants are such undervalued species, and their importance deserves recognition.

This book is very informative and the layout of the material in the chapters are very well put together. I really think this book would be useful to students in botany or even for people who are interested in plants who aren't in school for it. The information in there is very interesting and the illustrations definitely adds character. I liked the little test your knowledge section in the chapters too. My favorite chapter that I automatically jumped to was Ch. 21 on Tea Growing, Brew, and Leaves. I'm a big sweet tea drinker so I found the information in that chapter very fascinating. I really liked learning the process the tea leaf goes through for the different types of teas. Overall, this is a very informative and exciting book and I think the author did an amazing job.
