Looks cool, lots of branching and trunks. Post more pics in a couple months. What type of plant is this?
My only suggestion would be to think about reducing those 1 or 2 branch/trunks that are right in the middle. They are a bit distracting. If those are much shorter you should get a...
There are lots of websites and videos that are great for starting out. You don't absolutely need to buy any books.
Try not to take criticism as personal attacks but accept it and ponder on how to fix the issues raised.
