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.
