The author rambles fluff and throws in some unspecific pointers that are too vague to be helpful. The images sometimes don't match what text is talking about, and some are lifted off of other people's bonsai websites. It reads like a draft of ideas not fully formed, passed to someone else who just filled in with junk. It's a night-before-due cram job. Look to other books for actually useful info. There are better writings online for free by dedicated hobbyists and pros. I got this ebook because it was #1 and learned my lesson: # in rank is not automatically good - could be manipulation.
This is such a very impressive and useful book! This book is so informative and extremely helpful. I actually bought this book for my sister who wanted to try growing bonsai and hopefully make it as their business. She said that the book is full-packed with informations they needed from growing the bonsai to taking care of this plant. The author discussed the topic well and clear that even beginners will understand. So much worth recommending book!
I was not too familiar about the topic, and was even a bit skeptical about growing something like that in my house, but this book just helped me to go beyond my feelings and understand the history, culture but also the basic types of bonsai and how to correctly treat them. It is a well documented book, with many interesting insights.More about bonsai on my blog:[...]
The misuse, of punctuation; misspelled words?!?!? that were autocorrected to something else entirely. Only accents the lack of helpful information. I may be new to bonsai, but this author went cheap.... It talks about colors and shows pictures, all the pictures are black and white. And contrast is off. Overall a waste of money. I gave 2 stars because I will cut the cover and make a bookmarks for my other bonsai books.
Since my mother in law is so fan of bonsai plant, I was also interested to learn from it. So good thing I found this ebook. This book has it all from the basic to more advance level of gardening. It teaches you about the different types on how you setups your bonsai plants. It’s not easy as you think but this book can help you a lot. It also includes the things you need and ways on how to take care of your plant which I found useful for the foundation of our own knowledge.
The various information, pics of bonsai plants and pics of tools really get me in the mood to start bonsai-ing! I got this book because I love anything Japanese and this one is totally cool! So much information I feel like I have everything I need!
I was very happy with this beginner’s guide as the right choice to getting started, growing and maintaining my own bonsai tree. If you don't really care about the history of the Bonsai tree, you could probably skip the introduction. I love how the book goes step-by-step in explaining how to care for your Bonsai tree. The author did a great job in presenting this awesome and adorable book. I would love to read more books from this author.
Every time I will see a Bonsai plant I can't help it but to admire it's uniqueness. I mean, it looks big but really really cute in it's size. And yes sometimes I can't help but to question myself on how these cutey plants grow up, how can someone take care of it. Or is it worth the price when you buy it? Many questions yes, and a big thanks to this book all my questions will be answered now. The book is really impressive, all the information you need to know about Bonsai is already here, the book is full-packed.
