Looks to be a great book. Garden Drum has an in-depth review of it.

The authors have another book, Field Guide to Useful Native Plants from Temperate Australia, which is being reprinted, although copies appear to be available from Booktopia.
A review of the book from CSIRO states “More than 600 colour photos and drawings for ease of identification, as well as maps of local and Australia-wide distributions. Information on a wide range of uses for native plants as food, fibre and medicines, including notes on preparation. The result of a 15-year fieldwork partnership photographing, describing and using plants from the temperate eco-region of south-eastern Australia. A valuable contribution to the knowledge of the native plants of south-eastern Australia.

This guide will be of interest to people who live there and the many tourist who visit the area, as well as bushwalkers, educators, archaeologists and chefs.”
