Bonsai instruction

The book is well written with good illustrations. Almost nothing beats actual hands on, but the novice can take away much valuable information and start a lifelong hobby with this audible book. Worth listening and keeping for a lifetime in your Bonsai library!

I learned so much!

This is the guide to bonsai! I have listen a great deal on bonsai, and everyone respects Mr. Masao Hideyoshi. I found that the audible book contained all you could possibly need in the way of instruction. The only other thing needed is hands on experience.

I know more now than I did then

I only knew bonsai were stubby trees from the orient. I didn't know much more than that. Great introduction to bonsai. Well illustrated and clearly written. I can now see the art and appreciate the skill required to sculpt and maintain these miniatures.

Solid information!

This is the fifth book I've listen in my short bonsai career and a pretty good one. I only listen a few things that sounded off and the rest was in line with the other things I've listen. It also has some new info and tips I haven't heard before.

Great beginners guide

Great resource for those seeking introductory information regarding the art of Bonsai such as myself. The book covers many ares from tools, soils, styling, fertilizing, etc. Its photography shows what beautiful natural sculptures these trees really are.
