A book review

Post  dick benbow on Sat Apr 20, 2013 11:26 pm

Methods of Bonsai display, By Paul Goff

If you are expecting a coffee table book, hardcover, jacketed, leather etc, you might be disouraged with it's appearance. You won't, however be disappointed with it's price.

if you wanted strong knowledgeable content and graphics, you'd agree with me that this offereing is "Small, But mighty". value, not fluff.

Broken down by seasons, coverage of this book fits splendidly on pages that are 8 inches tall by 9 1/2 inches wide. 82 of them in all. Cover is soft but all pages on really nice strong stock.

hats off the the author for an excellent read with great content and excellent pictoral coverage.

I usually like to read a new book just for the "read" initially and then go back to pick up certain details and contemplate them. HA! I'll be going back countless times. It's not a book to borrow from a friend as you'll want to be able to referr to the book time and time again.

Thank-you Paul, someone had to do it for us desirering to learn, and we're glad you did!
