If you are looking for a different method of beekeeping this is a very good book. Brother Adams is filled with knowledge and didn't just use guess work. He experimented and did his homework. I found it very interesting that he places bees from different colonies together so quickly because of his belief that bees react to behavior- not scent. Understanding differences in bee behavior, even between races, has done so much to help me when requeening and combining colonies of my own. I have only touched on one section of the book that I liked, but there's so much more. The only flaw that I can think of is that I'd like it to go a little deeper. For instance, it gives hive measurements, but not for the frames/spacers. Although he discusses the feeders. I'd like to know more about them. I'd also like to know more about how much honey is left on the hives in the fall to get them through the Winter. All-in-all, a wealth of information in this book and I would definitely recommend it to any experienced beekeeper!
