A lot of insight and wisdom shared in this book.

This book enabled us to get a taste of how much Brother Adam mastered beekeeping and took it to another level where all details are important and everything works as a whole system.

Seems like a mission rather than just beekeeping.
No wonder the Buckfast bee is really a superb bee.

Overall a very good read.
