Tropical Forest Fruits, Seeds, Seedlings and Trees was published in October 2014. This is a thick book of 430 pages, weighing almost 2 kg. You have to be careful not to drop it on your feet. It will also make a hole in your pocket because the price at the FRIM bookshop is RM250. For overseas orders the price is USD 150. Postage will cost another RM 180 to the US and RM 130 to Europe.
Tropical Horticulture and Gardening is available in MPH bookshops in Malaysia at less then RM 90. It is really cheap at this price. The book may also be purchased from MPH Online.
