1.0 out of 5 stars worst book I've bought for a long time
it's not about bees, it's not informative, it's full of irritating 'translations' for the benefit of Americans, and it seems to be all about trying to somehow convince us to share Bill Turnbull's opinion that he's a wonderful guy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Read, 23 April 2012
This review is from: Confessions of a Bad Beekeeper: What Not to Do When Keeping Bees (with Apologies to My Own) (Paperback)
Very entertaining and provides good information for someone thinking of learning more about bees as well as a few tails that the experienced beekeeper can relate to. WARNING: This book is the same as The Bad Beekeepers Club but with a different cover.

Bill Turnbill has the talent of writing as if he's talking directly to the reader. As a novice in the beekeeping world, this was great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book, 4 Jan 2014

This review is from: Confessions of a Bad Beekeeper: What Not to Do When Keeping Bees (with Apologies to My Own) (Paperback)
This is a brilliant book about Bill's experiences in getting to know bees and beekeeping. It is a tricky hobby with lots of pitfalls - for the beekeeper and the bees, and Bill brings humour and humbleness to the process. Well worth a read even if you are not going to keep bees yourself. A good insight into starting this fascinating pastime.

Bill Turnbull's bee keeping is amusing and entertaining. I also learned a bit about the bees, honey and getting stung a lot! Even if you have no interest in the subject it will keep you laughing and turning the page to the end!

5.0 out of 5 stars I very rarely read but..., 13 July 2013

This review is from: Confessions of a Bad Beekeeper: What Not to Do When Keeping Bees (with Apologies to My Own) (Paperback)
I was given this book as a present from my kids, so had to read it, or else! I found it so easy to read, witty, and full of basic information on short Beekeeping, I could not put it down. As I'm not a reading addict, the short chapters made it easier to set myself targets when reading this book, now I think I will read another book, Thanks Bill. Oh and the kids. x
