Short, simple and a fast read. Great pictures. Now I'm going to trim my Bonsai, wish me luck.

This book is actually the best quick guide to bonsai that I have seen. I am giving it four stars because of its beautiful design and its wonderful simplicity.

I have a number of other books I use as references, however despite the fact that they are much larger they don't seem proportionately more thorough! This book manages a concentrated delivery of knowledge and recommendation. If you are serious about bonsai you will obviously want to read more than just this book but it serves as an excellen
Really super fast read, gave quick and dirty advice for wiring, long-term wiring, root pruning, and some before and after stem pruning and potting tips. I thought it was a good high-level view of this difficult plant art form.

part of my "someday i want to grow my own bonsai" thing. i guess i learned some things, but overall not a great book. perhaps when i know more it might be a useful quick reference though.
Not very enlightening but it was only $5 so I can't complain. Written like lecture notes: does not give any details but reminds you of what you already learned in depth from other sources.
I was a little bummed by this book. Like just the barest of cliff notes with only a little bit of the information I was looking for. it left me with more questions than answers.
i don't usually enjoy how to reading... this proved no exceptiuon but our bonsai is alive still.....
Very, very basic book... not enough info to be considered a book about bonsai...
The very basics of bonsai; excellent, clear photos, as DK is known for.
Great tips for begginer, so I really found this useful and fun.
