Well, I'd recommend some more hands on training, if you can do it. Here in FL, there are a lot of edible plants that have poisonous look alikes, for example, so eating them due to a pic in a book may not be a great idea.
You have to research both edible and poisonous plants, so you can readily tell the difference. Another idea, Google on playing cards that have these on them, and learn that way too. I'll have to find the link, but there's a great deck out there for this (and other survival topics). So, you can have a deck of cards in your BOB AND have it be a valuable tool.

EDIT: Here's the link:

Central FL. I'm still in the learning stage myself, before I attempt to forage. Mostly, I have horses, so first concentrated on the BAD stuff, so I can make sure it isn't in the pastures. Seagrapes and Blackberries grow wild around here, and are easily identified, so no problem eating those though...and dandelions if you're into them (I'm not).
