Holy smokes what a complete waste of $8. I already know absolutely everything in this poorly-written wreck from reading sources online for free. Absolutely NOTHING specific was taught here. Example; soil composition - author says to consider peat moss because it retains water and provides the bonsai with organic matter - totally valid ... how about mentioning specific ratios of the various components of a soil mixture? Well folks don't expect that, it's not here. Nope! instead the author says in the very next sentence that peat is NOT a good idea due to environmental concerns over harvesting and transporting it!?!?!? Make up your mind! Are you recommending I use it or not? This whole dare-I-say book was written like a high school report - same level of background research and writing skill went into it ... welll ... maybe less.
