Taku Furuya is a graphic designer, illustrator and photographer who fell in love with succulents and cacti at an early age. He is an experienced succulents gardener who has performed selective breeding with seeds he has collected, cultivated and crossbred. He is also a frequent visitor to the Americas, where he photographs succulents in their natural habitats.

The title of this book suggests that it is a beginner's guide. However, I feel that it is so much more than that. For instance the greatest attribute of this book is that the author has selected over 20 popular varieties of succulents and explains in detail everything you need to know to successfully grow them. Information on each variety includes buying pointers, soil and fertilizer needs. It also includes how to transplant and how to propagate. Characteristics of each type are given along with information on the best way to grow and maintain them. Moreover the information is presented in an easy to understand format and includes many illustrations and photos. Illustrated with full-color photography and simple drawings to clarify its easy-to-follow instructions, [this] is a solid guide to over 100 types of succulent plants, including varieties of flowering cactus. Chapters discuss choosing the right type of succulent for one's purposes, mixing the right soils, watering, fertilizing, providing the correct amount of sunlight, seasonal traits, and much more. Reader-friendly and practical, A Beginner's Guide to Succulent Gardening is highly recommended for anyone interested in cultivating these beautiful and hardy plants. -Midwest Book Review
