Very brief information on a selected number of indoor and outdoor suited trees. Though the book is small and great for carrying around, the images are small and are mainly photos of sad little mass market bonsai. Nothing in this book showcases the majesty and artistry of what bonsai is. Like Peter Chan's other titles which have the exact same images, this book appears to be a handbook to accompany puny, underdeveloped cheap pre-bonsai.
