This exquisitely well written and illustrated encyclopedic text on bonsai will thrill everyone from the novice to the master! 27. Mai 2010
Von D. Fowler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This fully illustrated volume is ideal for everyone from the rank novice to those who already have a strong foothold in this art form. The layout of this book is extremely appealing, informational, and just begs to be browsed. I purchased this book along with "101 Essential Tips: Bonsai" for a family member who is very interested in this hobby. This encyclopedic volume is much more involved, but is very complimentary to the other one. There are 800 photographs in this book and those alone are a real plus.

The introductory pages discuss bonsai and exactly what it is and isn't. The reader is urged to "not become too ambitious too soon in the process" and "move forward in logical steps, proceeding with caution." There is a brief, but enlightening section on the history of bonsai before the book launches full force into a magnificent treatise on varying aspects of this art form. This "encyclopedia" is not laid out in an A to Z manner, but rather unfolds in a leisurely one, one that the reader can feel comfortable with and enjoy. For example, when discussing how to create a cascade bonsai, you will read a bit about what the plant represents, its style, design, and how one goes about creating such a plant. Equipment you will need is listed followed by instructions and nine small, but detailed photographs.

This highly detailed book covers so much ground I would almost say this would be the only book one would ever need, but exploring other books can be just as exciting as searching though a greenhouse looking for the perfect starter plant. In this book you will learn about different types of plants, plants suitable for inside and/or outside bonsai, the sizes of plants, the aesthetics of your bonsai, the proportions of the plants, what to look for if you want to purchase bonsai, you will see photographs of numerous magnificent plants, you learn about tools and equipment, how to collect plants from the wild, how to propagate bonsai in several different manners (seed, cuttings, grafting, air layering, the types of soil you need, pruning techniques, shaping, creating jin, creating Sharimiki, re-potting, displaying, and much more!

This exquisitely well written and illustrated encyclopedic text on bonsai will thrill everyone from the novice to the master. If you are sick of spider plants overtaking your home you just might want to express yourself and learn about bonsai. There are many books to choose from, but I'd say this is one of the better ones, especially for the beginner to an intermediate level bonsai aficionado. This book will be not only a learning experience, but a book that is a pleasure to browse. In the back of the book there is an index, a glossary, a list of suppliers (worldwide), where you can find bonsai collections, a list of organizations (worldwide), and a U.S. and Canadian plant hardiness map and zone chart. This book is very impressive and well worth adding to your library or giving it as a gift!

One of the best books on bonsai 27. März 2011
Von Q. White - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I first purchased this book from Border's Books last year. It came as a boxed package that included a pair of pruning shears, and a spade shovel. I don't think I've ever seen a more detailed, in depth book on bonsai. I love how it tells of the many styles in which trees can be manipulated, and also how to create them.

Great quality photos are another area where this book shines. The content is easy to read, very understandable, precise, and specific on details needed for creating, and maintaining your future living work of art. It is a perfect book for any amateur, or veteran wanting to know more.

My only complaint is that I wish a more detailed guide on the correct usage of each tool had been provided. Other than that, the book is a definite must have for the aspiring bonsai learner, and veteran enthiasist.

Great Book - one gripe 17. April 2011
Von Nehalem Dave - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Very comprehensive, excellent images, well written, more style info and useful information than I have found elsewhere in a single volume. So then, why four stars and not five? The text is teeny tiny, as though they shrunk down a cocktail table book to microfiche.

If you wear bifocals, better get a big magnifying glass. Still, highly recommended.

A Cornucopia of Bonsai Wisdom 19. Februar 2013
Von Kevin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
A Cornucopia of Bonsai Wisdom

Most bonsai books have one or several major flaws.

1. They simplify the subject to the point of being insulting to the reader.
2. The book contains few or no color photographs.
3. The step-by-step process has major gaps.
4. The book is too short to be helpful.
5. The book is ambiguous about the subject as a whole.

Ken Norman approaches the subject of bonsai professionally. He presents the subject and technique of bonsai in a friendly step-by- step manner, and negotiates past common bonsai pitfalls with uncanny ability.

This book, so far, is the best bonsai book I've ever reviewed. It is a cornucopia of bonsai wisdom. With color photography next to the carefully documented techniques, there is little room for questioning the process. This book guides you with utter confidence and is truly invaluable.
The page and photography layout is reason alone to purchase this fine book. You can't pick up this book without examining the fine bonsai specimens contained within.
If you wish to save yourself hours of research and commentary by unknowledgeable authors and supposed experts this book belongs on your shelf.
