This was a great basic book on how-to. Covers almost all the important questions and problems that come up during the different seasons while beekeeping.

I think I will purchase this book to add to my library for quick reference.
Holy Propolis, Batman, this book is awesome!

If I were to choose one book for all my beekeeping, this would be #1. If I were to recommend one book for the beginner, a book that will last a lifetime of beekeeping, this book would be #1.

Well written, clear, concise. None better as far as I'm concerned.
Everything you ever wanted to know (and then some) about beekeeping.

The only downside is that the book is printed in landscape orientation, which makes it less practical as a "hand" book. Definitely takes two hands to hold this sucker. :)
Fantastic how-to book, updated in 2011 with the latest beekeeping info. It is more than a "for dummies" type of book, but not a so-called "bible." Excellent book for beginners and experienced beekeepers.
good bee book, simple to understand for beginners.
