Bonsai Basics provides a wide range of instructions for beginning, nurturing, tending, and growing a bonsai. It may inevitably provide to wide a berth of information for most growers, but insightful information all the same. Even for those enthusiasts already experienced with growing bonsai for a few years, the book provides some helpful techniques and advice. Ultimately, it pushes the reader toward more advanced topics and techniques which will likely surpass most readers' appreciation.

Good read, but only for those interested in the proper care and general info, those who want specialized info should look elsewhere!
