Good Weed Bad Weed is a friendly, authoritative, easy-to-use guide to the uninvited plants in our yard: who they are, how to control them safely - and why it's a good idea to love some of them just the way they are (including a chart for how best to let our labor-intensive lawns “go native”). Weed expert Nancy Gift considers 50 of the most interesting and noteworthy weeds in our lives, with generous helpings of full-color photos, humor and some tasty weed recipes. Presented in the same format as our popular field guide to garden insects, Good Bug Bad Bug, with heavy matte-laminated pages and concealed-wire binding for handy use outside. An attractive gift book for adults and curious kids alike.
Nancy Gift is an assistant professor of environmental studies and acting director of The Rachel Carson Institute at Chatham University in Pittsburgh. Previously, she wrote a book of garden essays, A Weed by Any Other Name: The Virtues of a Messy Lawn, or Learning to Love the Plants We Don't Plant (Beacon Press, May 2009).

The Ethicurean, Holly Hickman: "Gift knows her stuff.”
The Midwest Book Review: “...a read that anybody who wants a new philosophy of lawn care will love.”
