A quick  glance at the captions of the pictures suggests that it could have

The editing of many hort. books could use better editing, Jim. I am an  
editor by profession, mostly of textbooks, and now do it entirely  freelance. I 
talked with representatives of Timber Press once about the  possibility of taking 
on some projects for them. I was told that they'd love to  have that luxury, 
but since the market for a single title is relatively small,  they simply 
couldn't afford me. I have no reason to believe that this isn't also  true for 
most hort. titles.
