Just wondering what everyone thinks is the best pot growing book and what they have in their library?
These are my books:
Marijuana growers Guide by Mel Frank and Ed Rosenthal
Indoor Marijuana Horticulture by Jorge Cervantes
The Cannabis Grow Bible by Greg Green
My choice for the most informative would be
#1 The Cannabis Grow Bible by Greg Green
#2 Marijuana growers Guide by Mel Frank and Ed Rosenthal
#3 Indoor Marijuana Horticulture by Jorge Cervantes

The only one I ever read was Ed Rosenthal's 2010 version of the Marijuana Grower's Handbook.

It's good. I got a lot of ideas from it, and he clearly knows a lot. I recommend it, BUT:

The editing and proof reading is atrocious -- really the worst I've seen in a published book. Paragraphs are repeated, some sentences that should be continued on the next page just disappear and a new paragraph begins, misspelled words... The editors really did the man a disservice, and I assume they were stoned off their asses when they edited, or they are totally incompetent.

Completely agree. It's a good book and the pics are nice as well but yea, the editing is awful and Ed contradicts himself quite a few times.

Got these in my library to, and must say its my bible, reference. mainly I have cooking books, info books to use as reference. Awesome the other day to find a 300 page hemp hardcover cooking book for roughly the equivalent of 10 Euros.

If you are growing hydroponically "Hydroponics Indoor Horticulture" is a really good book. Even if you aren't growing the hydro way this book has great info about growing MMJ.

I've read The Cannabis Grow Bible by Greg Green online and thought it was good. Doesn't come close to The Indoor/Outdoor Medical Grower's Bible by Jorge Cervantes though imo.

The bible's the only grow book I own, covers everything I need, written and explained really well, and many quality pics to boot. :)

A dude let me look at that book...it was actually pretty good.

There are things in there that I've never seen on a forum before, such as splitting stems on clones, etc.

Each page is "glossy" as well, so if you're a neophyte, you'd have no problem actually reading from it as you cast spells; spills would easily wipe off.
