4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, and useful, 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
New to beekeeping and starting down the Natural Beekeeping road, guidelines are frustratingly scattered and confusing.

I found David's previous publication, The Bee-friendly Beekeeper, excellent and informative. As such, I placed an order as soon as I heard another book was due to be released.

My initail impression was one of disappointment as it seemed to be a re-written version of the first book. However, that turned out not to be the case.

The sub-title of the book is 'A Manual' and that is exacty what it is. Yes, it does have many parts that are the same as the first book, but without most of the background information. This is coupled with lots of new information and complemented with many images. As such, it becomes a book that will be referred to frequently throughout the season; and this brings me to my criticism.

The paper used is thin to the point that text shows through from the other side. Also, the photographs are poorly produced giving an impression of a cheaply produced publication. It doesn't have the same feel as the first book which is a joy to read.

Bottom line is, I'm glad I have both books but will be refering to the 'Manual' on a regular basis. I expect to have to buy another copy when it wears out and would be willing to do so.

Highly recommended for information but publication could be better.

I have read numerous books on beekeeping and this is by far the most inspiring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Godd beginner's guide, 11 Nov. 2013

As a beekeeping novice this was just right to get me started with Warrés, though once started all sorts of questions came up which aren't covered. Perhaps that's only to be expected.
