I have the book, and from what I've seen on the group lately, I think it's been
revised and updated. The information in it is only as accurate as those who sent
it to the keepers of the list knew to make it. In other words, if they say they
have variety such & such but they received it mislabeled, then they don't really
have it. The inventory is not verified by anyone other than the owners of each
collection or nursery. It's a very extensive source of varieties
