5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Richard A. Drew on 24 Dec. 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
On the positive side, the photos are good and the instructions clear. It's an interesting alternative approach to bonsai.

However there is very little content. Every example repeats how to prepare and fill a pot - does the reader really need to be told how to put mesh in a pot and add soil for each example? It's incredibly repetitive and padded with very shallow short pieces on friends companies.

The author should be forced to remove the copy-paste function form his word processor. The book could have been written as a collection of photographs with no more than ten pages of instructions. It is tediously repetitive, therefore frustrating.

Needed more information 6 Feb. 2013
By Wynne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provided more examples than needed for plain moss containers (one would have been enough), but skimped on details when the more complicated plants were covered. For example, I was disappointed that the need of most conifers to experience a cold, dormant period was not mentioned. You can follow the author's advice to make your small treasures, but keeping them alive is another problem entirely, and I feel he didn't say enough about the needs of plants cultivated indoors. Still, it gives plenty of creative ideas; just don't use it as your only resource.

Awesome Take on New Style 10 May 2013
By Desert Rat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book on a different type of Bonsai. It is well written; photos are very good; directions and resources are excellent.

This is a must-have book for the Bonsai Enthusiast.

A good intro to Keshiki Bonsai. 1 April 2013
By Marie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was very interesting and I will be making a garden. I was expecting a little more in the way of training the plants but that is not really was Keshiki Bonsai is about. Glad I got it.

Worth it 5 Feb. 2013
By B. Lindquist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very nice little book. I gave it to my son for Christmas. Worth the money. A lot of thought lies behind it. You could spend many hours with it. Not a classic, but lots of food for thought.
