|Published in March 2003 by the Cactus & Co organisation.

The main contents include history and classification of the many types of crassulas, distribution, habitat forms and features, propagation, seed raising, names and naming identification, and complete key to the species, with descriptions of almost 90 cultivated species, including illustrations. One chapter alone has more than 250 gorgeous colour photos, with each species having its own distribution map!. The book also covers many of the attractive cultivars and hybrids which have been produced. There is a glossary, synonymy and bibliography. 9¼" x 13" in size, with each page in full colour and includes 476 big size top quality colour photos on heavy mat, acid-free paper, hardbound in cloth, title embossed in gold, and a full colour mat-laminated dust jacket.|
