    “THE” book about Bonsai This is my fourth Bonsai book and the best one I have found so far. I had never ordered it online, because it seemed to be one more of those books with fancy pictures and poor information.

    Perfection!!! I became intersted in bonsai several years ago and have read and purchased numerous books on the subject. “The Complete Book of Bonsai” by Harry Tomlinson is absolutely the very best on the subject I have ever come across.

    Inspiring, beautifully illustrated, and easy to understand If I had this book when I first started my bonsai hobby five years ago, I would have saved myself years of frustration and would have been able to enjoy bonsai almost immediately following the straightforward instructions Harry Tomlinson presents to the reader. I can definitely recommend “The Complete Book of Bonsai” to the beginner not only for this reason but also for its eye-catching beauty, wealth of ideas, and very reasonable price considering the sheer volume of high quality photography included in its hardcover binding.As other reviewers here wrote, the high number of photographs far from reduce this book’s usefulness as a practical guide. Rather, since bonsai is in its essence a visual art, the photographs effectively and elegantly convey many important concepts that words simply can’t.One of my favorite features in “The Complete Book of Bonsai” is its quick start approach. Tomlinson minces no words while introducing the art of bonsai, getting straight to its essence. Immediately after introducing the basic tools and concepts, he shows the reader how to create his or her very first bonsai in only minutes from common garden center stock.This is important for the beginner because Tomlinson reassures the reader that one needn’t start with seeds to be creating real bonsai. It is much more important, in my opinion, that beginners discover how enjoyable creating these works of art can be without being discouraged by the years required to start from seed. I can say this with confidence because trying to start from seed was the very mistake I made when first getting into it.In conclusion, if you’re interested in starting a bonsai hobby, this book is a must-have. Don’t hesitate or read more reviews. Just mark this one as helpful, add the book to your basket, and profit from a well written work.Good luck!
