I find this book very useful, I have lots of flowers and vegetation in general in my garden, and this has given me a great guideline to creating more beautiful flower arrangements in my house, I feel much more confident about my arrangements and about trying different things. If you are a beginner like I am, this is a wonderful book, I bought this toghether with Judith Blacklock's "Flower Design" and found that they both complement each other very well. Am very pleased with my purchase.

I purchase this book because of previous reviews and I was expecting an instructional book describing in detail how to do flower arrangements designs; but this is not the book for it. It is just pretty to look at it and it has some nice abtract designs but nothing that will contribute to the learning process of flower arragements.

I give the purchase a 5 star rating because it's not the sellers fault. On the seller end, the shipment was great, fast and the book came in the great condition. The book itself, on the other hand, is by far, the least helpful book I have ever seen in my years of floristry. It is mostly a coffee table book, not recommended to anyone wanting to learn new techniques. For that, Go get Jane packer's books, any of them.

I am extremely pleased that "A Master Guide to the Art of Floral Design" is used as a textbook for the California Certified Florist exam in several colleges. Alisa de Jong'Stout's lessons in reading nature and understanding the language of flowers make the book a textbook of choice in the sculpture and jewelry programs at the California College of the Arts in Oakland and San Francisco.

It is my hope that this book becomes an essential guide to and a foundation for floral design in the United States and beyond.

As Chairman of World Flower Council International, operating in 32 countries, I am often asked for a concise text for the study of floral design. "A Master Guide to the Art of Floral Design" clearly fulfills this need.

In one word....stunning. Alisa Stout's artistic vision is conveyed here in a clear and comprehensive way. The book is visually gorgeous. I was impressed with the author's ability to explain her creative process in a meaningful way. LOVE this book so much I have bought copies for friends!
This is a glorious book! I never will look at a flower in the same way again. The author gives us the tools to examine every aspect of a flower, such as form and shape, light and color, accompanied by exquisite, instructive photographs.
As a total novice, I came away virtually tutored, with a new appreciation of design and materials. I know professionals will gain much from the insights in this beautiful book.
The author's concise and instructive writing, along with the perfectly positioned pictures in the text, enlighted the reader as to the ultimate teacher--Nature--residing in each plant.
I highly recommend this book and plan to buy more for gifts.
