I bought this book because of the very good rating here on Amazon and it wasn't the best decision I made. This book contains only very general information that you can easily find everywhere on the internet without spending money on it. It looks good with it's hardcover and some nice pictures but that's about it. I finished reading it in less than an hour and couldn't find anything interesting or new inside. Very disappointing overall.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 For beginners, typical for Dorling Kindersley's 'do-it-yourselfs' 22 août 2014
Par Eugene Tenenbaum Reluctant Reader - Publié sur
Format: Relié Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
ISBN 1465419586 (Bonsai, 1st ed.) is written and published in the tradition of Dorling Kindersley's books for beginners, like visual dictionaries, atlases, children books on history, the human body, animals, activities, but slightly below Eyewitness Travel Guides. The Bansai is not different, as being profusely illustrated and beautifully bound, but its examples are lacking the sophistication of The Complete Book of Bonsai, though the process is depicted more thorough and thus better explained.

Typically for the 101 Essential Tips/do-it-yourself (DIY) series, every single step is presented sequentially and pictorially, breaking down each stage of a job, from choosing tools to performing tasks to suggesting the form. The tasks have relatively few steps, so no overview feature is present to show the entire sequence of events from start to finish. The simple, clear, friendly style of the presentation ensures even harder task are made easy and can be tackled with confidence and enthusiasm regardless of the ability level.

Approx. 29 pages incl. the index are shown by the's "LOOK INSIDE!" function. What cannot be seen is that the book is well printed on excellent paper, and hard-bound incl. a nice dust jacket. The covers are strong and flexibly jointed.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Prettiest bonsai book in my growing collection (4.5 stars) 26 août 2014

I've always loved plants and gardening, but for as much as I've admired bonsai, I've always been afraid to try it. (I've purchased a few but always lost them to my neglect and busy schedule, but I'd really like to try it from 'scratch.') So, instead of becoming a collector of bonsai, I'm becoming more of a collector of bonsai books - and this one has just become my new favorite. The explanations of what bonsai is and the differerent styles are comparable to what I've seen in other books. Likewise, the lists of tools needed and the basic instructions are not so different from what you'd find elsewhere, although the step-by-step of several styles is nicely detailed and illustrated. The 'care of' section might be a little thinner than some, but what I love most are the absolutely beautiful and inspiring pictures - and lots of them. I'm familiar with the DK books from when my kids were young, but lately I've been very impressed with the detail and quality of the DK books that are targeted for more for grown-up interests. Since I'm no bonsai expert I can't say if the instruction is as perfect as the pictures appear to be, but it seems to me that this is an ideal guide for the beginner or perhaps even the intermediate bonsai enthusiast. It certainly makes me want to give it a try.

Something I never understood is how the word Bonsai could be something a Japanese Soldier would shout as he plunged his bayonet into an enemies' chest,, and it also meant those tiny trees? And how do they stunt their growth and get them to fit in those tiny pots? While you are on your own with the first part of the question, the second part is fully covered in this excellent book. You'll learn the finer points of styling a young juniper, or creating a twisted dead wood juniper. Lipstick Ficus. Manilla Tamarind. Japanese Black Pine. European Yew. Sageritia. Flowering Quince.

Unlock the potential of a Potentia. You'll learn Bonsai basics, choosing pots, styles, and what tools you'll need. Basic care, seasonal tasks, and trouble shooting. It is all laid out in step-by-step instructions.

While you sometimes can't see the forest for the trees, you will be able to see all you'll need to know about the fascinating Art of Bonsai in the pages of this book. Bonsai!

As a visual person who loves words, I'm smack in DK's demographic -- as evidenced by my growing collection of DK travel and reference titles. Thus, I was curious how the ethos of "show, don't tell" would translate to a meticulous discipline that normally is propagated by the spoken word and during months-long classes.

The short answer is that this book bears the hallmarks of learning bonsai in the traditional manner. History and context come first, followed by descriptions of the goals of shaping. Only then, after the student is conversant with the what and why of bonsai does the focus switch to how to achieve it, from selection to shaping to maintenance and display.

Yes, it is more traditional -- and perhaps easier -- to watch and listen to your sensei, and then work on your bonsai under your sensei's exacting gaze. However, not everyone has access to this sort of tutoring. Author Peter Warren and the editorial team behind this book take would-be students through the process in a way that is very similar to the first bonsai class I took years ago, which was led by three sensei who had combined experience of more than a century. We were given carefully mimeographed (!) fact sheets and drawings, which I treasure, along with my completion certificate, my tools from Kyoto, and the peace that comes from spending countless hours among beauty.

This volume, with its clear line art and photography, provides thorough reference for every step you are likely to take in selecting, shaping, training and nurturing your bonsai. As such, it is suitable for beginners, although the wealth of detail may be somewhat daunting. Warren's voice is clear throughout, providing a degree of care and specificity that should be comforting to students without an in-person support network.

Additionally, this book is very well suited as an ongoing reference for those who have taken an introductory course but who may not have access to a bonsai club for ongoing support. The degree of detail is superb if you are contemplating a technique you learned about but have not had a chance to try.

The only quirk in this book -- which actually speaks to its credibility -- is that not all of the photographs are as high-production-value as is DK's norm. Some of the images are color-shifted, the way some of your favorite family snapshots and slides may have become over the years. I like to think that this is because these are indeed images of family treasures.

With apologies to my sensei for adapting their encouragement a little: The best time to have started your bonsai was 10 years ago. The next-best time is next week, after you've read this book and assembled your supplies.
