I loved this book. It inspired me to continue collecting Bromeliads and to take better care of the ones I have.
It has good information on cultivation for different Genera, troubleshooting pests and disease, and recipes for potting media as well as having some gorgeous pictures.
The follow up book, "Bromeliads, the connoisseurs guide" also by Andrew Steens, is even better!
Andrew Steens has an online bromeliad business in New Zealand and is well known in Bromeliad society circles. //

Good introductory book on Bromeliads- covers all the genera, albeit briefly (though writer admits that). Not a great book, therefore, to purchase if you just want to know what something is... need an identification guide for that. But nice photos, good general information and some tips on cultivation, disease, history and more. For the price, this is an excellent book for anyone who is interested in tropical and subtropical plants, and landscaping in such climates.
