I have an earlier addition of The Hive and the Honey Bee published by Dadant, a compilation of honey bee information by a number of experts, originally published in 1946. The printing I have is 1975. The Roy Grout version must have been a successor to this original book. Full of great information. Some of it is possibly dated but in 1946 it was the state of the art and has great chapters on behavior, the colony, races, anatomy, etc. A friend and former bee keeper passed to us for our library and ...more

This isn't a book you will want to read straight through. It is VERY long, more like a reference guide than a book to read. It has MANY helpful sections, and i would recommend it. This book can be VERY expensive even used, so if you are a new beekeeper and aren't sure if you will stay in beekeeping, then you probably shouldn't buy this book, but borrow it from the library (if they have it) or borrow it from a friend. All in all it is probably one of the best beekeeping books written.

A must-have for any beekeeper, new or experienced. The one thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars is the occasional poor editing.
