I had a chance of reading Rataj & Horeman's book on loan from a friend. 
The best plant book I've seen so far. It's not flashy, many pictures are 
in black and white. But as reference material, it's superb. It describes
a lot of plant species and gives information about their natural habitat 
as well, something I found difficult to find anywhere else. Definiteley
worth the price IMHO.
