I really enjoyed this book. I feel after reading that I can accurately and effectively buy and care for a bonsai, and I look forward to getting my very own!

Informative and helpful, though a bit subjective with their opinions on some things! Worth looking over if getting into bonsai, though not something I feel the need to own.

Overall this is a very good how to book on care and techniques. Excellent illustrations are included making it good quick reference book for problem solving. It has a great section on pest and diseases along with a great overview for the more common species and specific care. If you are in the beginning stages of your leaning bonsai, this book will help you in making your choice of trees.
