I give this book 6 out of 10 acorns

This book was recommended by a designer who came to speak during a PDC I attended at Paul's place. The information presented in the book is good, and there's really quite a bit covered as far as different techniques used to create visual interest in the landscape.

The reason this book didn't get a better rating from me is that the presentation of the material really leaves a lot to be desired in my opinion. The illustrations used throughout the book are all rough pencil sketches that are universally blurry and often very busy. I would have liked this book much better if it included crisper sketches or better yet proper illustrations and photographic examples of the subject matter.
I agree. Here's the link: http://richsoil.com/cards
