5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best October 10, 2000
I have the 1985 hard back edition of this book. It is one of the mainstays in my library. I have been doing bonsai for about 15 years and refer to this book often. The apendices are extremely helpful. They list a large number of trees and shrubs and tell when each should be repotted, wired, fed, pruned, etc. This is a must for anyone who has a variety of different specimens. You just can't remember it all. The pictures are beautiful and helpful for ideas on how to do your bonsai. I'm ordering this copy for my son-in-law who wants to begin the art of bonsai.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mostly a beginner's guide April 2, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book give some good information on bonsai but it is lacking. It is a nice starter's guild but it is definitely not a complete guide to art and technique. There are some good information within it but for intermediate bonsai artists it is just some more basic information that is in all other starter's guides. But it is always nice to have a good rounded collection of information with any art and if you are looking for another book, it is nice to have for more information and ideas. I still enjoyed the book because you never know what you might be missing.

This book is beautifully illustrated and very well organized. Finding details for bonsai types and best plants to use allow removes the guess work and minimizes expensive mistakes.
