Do not buy this jumble of letters
on 15 January 2012
This book has been taken from the original, scanned in to a computer, software has been used to try to recognise the text and then the book reprinted based upon what the software thinks was in the original. There is no evidence of it having been proof read.
The result is a very poor quality book with a minimum of 20 typos and on some pages at least 100 typos.
The technical terms associated with the anatomy of a honey bee mean that the software cannot differentiate between similar words but with different meanings. You cannot decipher or even attempt to decipher the text because the critical drawings or illustrations from the original book have been left out as the software can't tell the difference between illustrations and smudges! It is an anatomical reference book with no drawings and thousands of typos.
As a reference text this book is wholly unsuitable.
They say an infinite number of monkeys with an infinite number of typewriters and an infinite amount of time would eventually come up with the complete works of Shakespeare. Two monkeys with one typewriter and a bottle of Jack Daniels could knock this book up in an afternoon. Save your money
