Having completed a course on beekeeping and read several traditional books on the subject, it was refeshing to find Philip Chandler's book. This has been a complete eye-opener to me and has convinced me to use top bar hives only and to care for bees in as natural a way as possible. His argument is, for me, utterly persuasive, and I am surprised that traditional methods of beekeeping have not been challenged more often. If you are thinking of keeping bees, do read this book to give you an alternative method which, it would seem is much more bee-friendly.
