Mr. Miyagi would have been proud

Yes, you can wax on and off but having a bonsai tree is for artists. I enjoyed this book. Good guide.

Complete garbage.

This was obviously one of those books that was written over the course of an afternoon in attempt to make a few dollars. You could tell the whole book was cobbled together from articles on a click baity website with keywords annoyingly crammed into every sentence for SEO. (They used the phrase "Bonsai tree for sale" about 30 times within the first few minutes)

0 effort was put into this book and I returned it immediately.

Thanks, Karate kid dude

Thought of that movie, and the tranquility they claim that comes from cutting Bonsai trees. It's quite the hobby. This book is a good guide, especially for beginners like me.

Bonsai guide

This is for beginners. That's why the story only got 4 stars. But the rest was amazingly well.
