Not a detailed guide
on 7 December 2012
This is a very attractive book, with some great photographs. I suppose it would be quite a nice book to have if you are just starting to think about beekeeping, as it tells you what you have to do, but it doesn't really tell you how you have to do it.
No-one in their right minds would take up beekeeping without a very great deal of thought and research, and this would not really add to even the simplest of libraries on the subject.
There is an awful lot of repetition, and, had there not been, the information contained in this book could have fitted into a very slim volume indeed, if not a pamphlet.
As I say, quite nice as a preliminary introduction rather than a guide.
