How to Correctly Read Bonsai Heresy-
When a student sent me this photo I began to worry that others might be having similar reading malfunctions.
We are here to help. If you can’t make any headway with Bonsai Heresy, please—before calling, writing, or showing up on the doorstep—check that you aren’t taking direction from Rich, a past Seasonal student. (It was a long 2 years…we miss you Rich!) Orientation of this product is up to you, though optimal performance is to start at the top, and read left to right.

Happy Holidays everyone!
Hahaha! Got my copy!
My copy is in my most literary prestigious spot in my house; strategically centered, for ease of access, on the top of the toliet tank, next to the air freshener.
Some would say if it drops in the toilet it’s achieved its truest location…but thank you for the honor of top spot!
Michael, I am of the opinion that your book is a very good sign of a developing United States bonsai culture. Just one more step up the ladder to “USA Style” bonsai. Many thanks for writing it.
Love the book easy to understand I’m on my second reading of it now and learning more thank you for a great work
Many thanks for the comments, happy to hear it’s being read more than once!
Oh, interesting comment, thanks— a ‘work in progress’, just like a bonsai, right?
Thank you for this very enlighting book. I’ve read it twice and have used up a whole pad of sticky notes to mark all the (in my opinion) important points!
Very glad you’re enjoying it!
I am enjoying and learning a lot from the content of you book.
Would appreciate binding that would lend itself to allowing it to be held open easier. Or, to lie flat on my slanted book holder and on my work bench.
As it is, due to trying to open it widely, I am cracking the binding.
Yes, sorry to hear this, it’s not meant as a flat open softcover. That’s a special binding and sorry that we didn’t go that route. Thanks for the comment and we’ll look into that next time-
Hi Michael thanks for sharing knowledge once again. I like the interaction that brings the science proves into bonsai. The book has became an oasis in this quarantine.
Thanks Carlos! Glad you enjoyed the book-
