Post-Dated, The Schooling of an Irreverent Bonsai Monk - by Michael Hagedorn
"Post Dated, is an illuminating book for those seeking the true meaning of bonsai... revealing how bonsai opens our hearts to compassion and the poignant beauty of nature." -Felix Laughlin, President, National Bonsai Foundation
"Post-Dated is at once an entertaining narrative... and an examination of the meaning and soul of bonsai that is rarely discussed or even understood by Western teachers." -David DeGroot, teacher and curator, Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection.
"Michaels thoughts and experiences are accurate, informative and well-written. I was captivated by his book and could not put it down until I finished it! -William N. Valavanis, teacher and publisher of International Bonsai magazine.
"No one has accomplished as much as Michael did in Japan, and he will bring American bonsai to a higher standard." -Boon Manakitivipart, bonsai artist and teacher.
"Michael's book can spread the messages that I have always wanted to express.... peoples hopes and dreams manifested through true works of bonsai..." -Shinji Suzuki, Kokufu and Prime Minister Award-winning bonsai master.
If you're still not convinced, here's my two cents... spent a few delightful hours at 30,000 feet with Michael's book, contemplating the nature of bonsai and human folly (and wisdom), all wrapped together with a playful sense of humor and respect. Don't miss it! It's a must for anyone who loves bonsai. Or anyone who just loves a good read.
Oh, and by the way, Michael has a new book out. His latest is called Bonsai Heresy and it's another excellent read.
