By Michael Hagedorn 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ﾗor even understoodﾗby Western teachers.
-David DeGroot, teacher and curator, Pacific Rim Bonsai Collection.
Michaelﾒs 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ﾒs book can spread the messages that I have always wanted to express.... peopleﾒs hopes and dreams manifested through true works of bonsai...
-Shinji Suzuki, Kokufu and Prime Minister Award-winning bonsai master.
If youﾒre still not convinced, hereﾒs my two cents... I recently spent a few delightful hours at 30,000 feet with Michaelﾒs unique and wonderful book, contemplating the true nature of bonsai and human folly (and wisdom), all masterfully wrapped together with a playful sense of humor and respect. Donﾒt miss it! Itﾒs a must for anyone who loves bonsai. Or anyone who just loves a good read.
