This is a lovely book.
It is well written, has lots of good and relevant photos. Its well organised and easy to read. If you are wondering about bee keeping and want to know if its for you and how to get stated then I recommend this book.
It is also a UK based book so all of it is relevant (if you live in the UK)
This wont be the book that you refer back to if you take up bee keeping eventually but it will get you up to speed with the basics very quickly.
I would recommend this book above:
- Beekeeping for dummies
- Bees at the bottom of the garden (which is the book all the bee keeping starter packages come with and its pretty poor).

As a complete new bee keeper I brought 2 books from Amazon was given a third. Compared with the other 2 books I have now read, this was my least favourite. I good book but it frequently made use of phrases etc. that assumed some prior knowledge of bee keeping that I didn't have. Descriptions were sometimes vague left too much to the imagination. I also brought 'keeping bees and making honey' which was produced in the same format and size and that had far better illustrations and the descriptions of what is a very complicated subject at first were far better.

The book is pleasing to the eye, well laid out interesting information throughout the book and some really good down to earth advice.
other books are on the market but to be honest you can not go wrong with this one and as the paul Peacock states gain knowledge from other bee keepers and back it up with this book.
well done Pual for a good value and very practical book

A well set out, easy to read book, touching on all the aspects of beekeeping. Doesn't go into too much depth, but is ideal for those who are thinking about starting out in bee keeping, but also just for those who are interested. I really enjoyed this book, and the pictures are great for helping understand what you have just read a bit better.
