Everyone has to start somewhere and Ron Brown makes the start clear for each season. Good as a quick reference book or "what do I do now" guide it also gives some excellent ideas what to do as you gain more confidence in handling the bees. The diagrams and references are very clear although do sometimes require you to jump to distant parts of the book. The style is very much that of a practical beekeeper rather than a literary expert but is quite readable all the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wasn't disappointed 20 May 2011
I had heard about Ron Brown's book when it was published years before and this edition is beautifully presented. I like the feel of the hardcover and it is a pleasure to hold in one's hands. The format is simple and whatever one needs to find in any particular moment is easily found. I like particularly the way he has given advice for beginners and then for more experienced beekeepers. This is helpful as beekeeping information can seem very daunting for those just starting. I highly recommend it and it is a lovely gift to give too.
