I want this 3 part series. Amano book prices are HEFTY. I love reading things that he writes. So much aquascaping info is in my mind. Yet I feel like I could never do one. I need some of those fancy rocks.
Does he have a more encyclopedia like plant guide?

My favorite books-

"Ecology of the Planted Aquarium" by Diana Walstad
"Bettas A Complete Introduction" by Walt Maurus
"Tropical Fish Iopaedia-A Complete Guide to Fish Care" by Mary Bailey and Peter Burgess
"Mini Encyclopedia Aquarium Plant" by Peter Hiscock
"Handbook of Tropical Aquarium Fish" by Dr Herbert R. Axelrod and Dr Leonard P. Schultz

These are just a few of the books I have in my library-my main go-to books

I also get monthly magazines-both the TFH(Tropical Fish Hobbyist) and AFI(Aquarium Fish International)

I have found several nice aquarium books at thrift shops for under $1.00....they usually have a lot of species specific books-but I did find the one Betta book I listed (different edition) for either 25 or 50 cents. You have to go and check all the time....but if your in the area it is worth a look-see....lol....got several cheap tanks that away too.....

Amazon is where I have bought most of the books I listed......

I get the AFI magazine for $13.00/year and during Christmas usually TFH will have a $10.00 off coupon and so you can get it for $18.00/year......
