Abstract The title of this book indicates that it will focus on tropical turf management, a specialist topic not hitherto covered in detail by standard turf textbooks. A more disciplined approach might have produced a much-needed specialist text to fulfil the publisher’s claim that it provides a practical introduction to all aspects of tropical turf management. Regrettably, the final product lacks a consistent focus in this regard, and its usefulness must therefore be judged against other general turf textbooks.
