If it is even half as good as its predecessor, it is worth whatever it costs. I no longer purchase books, but, I bet this one is a keeper.

appreciate your thoughts,Jim...

He designed the book NOT as a "how to" book but a book to understand WHY. He helps you understand japanese, chinese and natural styles. My favorite is chapter 14 on display. I couldn't put it down last night. I read as much as I could to just read....but I will go back and read it for content and my understanding.

His first book, basic bonsai design was first published in 1995.

I know the next one he'll start working on is maintenance for bonsai. Smile
