Bonsai care at it?s best.

This book is paramount for anyone who is thinking of getting started, or just keeping up a bonsai tree. Beautifully illustrated with step-by-step pictures in full color on every page, and small enough to put in your pocket, it couldn't be better.The information is presented in an easy forthright manner making it comfortable for the user to jump right in. I picked up this book after the demise of my first Bonsai tree and I am happy to report that my second tree is thriving. Kelsana 12/14/01

Lots of info, but not lots of pages! Must have!

If you like Bonsai, or received one as a gift, this is the book to get. Filled with 101 (literally) facts and tips, it is concise, streamlined and offers excellent pictures.All critical areas are covered in the book: potting, trimming, shaping, wiring, feeding, watering (the most important perhaps!). If you want to take a crack at an advanced level of Bonsai care, it even guides and discusses growing the roots onto rock, and hanging patterns. There's also a few great tips that clears up the confusion about what sort of tools you *really* need.This is a MUST to add to your Bonsai book collection.

a beginners point of view

I am just starting out in this hobby. I went to the bookstore and looked at many books before picking this one out. Most were priced at twenty dollars or more and I just didn't want to spend that much for something I was just getting into. I checked out several books from the library and read them, including another larger book by the same author. After reading them, I looked through this one and felt that most of the really important info in the larger books was in this one as well with less words and pictures. I am really happy with this book. The photos are clear and informative, and the information is just what I need to get started. Sometimes when starting out, it is better not to get too bogged down in details or you will never dive in. I think this book is just the thing to get a beginner started without making the whole bonsai thing seem out of reach and demanding. Eventually, I can see I will want a guide with more info on individual plants and their care, but this will get me started, and at a great price.

A great book for the first timer.

This is a good source of information for those who are new to the world of Bonsai. It is compact, yet full of very useful information on everything from starting a Bonsai to displaying them. It covers tools, wiring, shaping, and very important tips.
