This is a ridiculous review (ridiculous enough that i feel i've got to comment).
Taking it statement by statement:
1. "This is a picture book". No it's not, there are many many words on each of the topics.
2. "...lots of soft focus shots of flower beds...". There are NO, repeat NO soft-focus shots in this book. The only photos containing only flowers are the ones in the section telling you WHICH FLOWERS TO GROW TO ATTRACT BEES.
3. "They've been keeping bees for just a few years so very limited in what they can tell you and obviously have only tried one approach.". Honestly, WTF? this is an introductory guide, a taster, a glimpse into the world of beekeeping; it's not an encyclopedia, and if it was - it wouldn't be aimed at aspiring (a word used on the back cover of the book) bee keepers.
4. "Not good enough for the beginer" [sic]. Utter, utter drivel. I'm a beginner - it's good enough for me. The other people that i attend a course with are as clueless as me - it's been good enough for them.
5. "...will rapidly leave you wanting more.". YES - finally we agree, it will. Hopefully it will leave you thinking..."hmmm...that sounds a) fun and b) doable with the time and resources i have available" and that is a good thing. It will also encourage you to GO AND SPEAK TO SOMEBODY ABOUT KEEPING BEES. Perhaps a local course? get in touch with your local/county bee keeping association? You should not attempt to keep bees on the basis that you've read a book (ANY book) - you need to get involved with a bee-keeping community. They will help you far more than any tome. You will get better advice (it will be local rather than generic), better deals on the gear (across the board: books, hives, suits and bees), actual assistance keeping the little blighters and you never know, you might actually enjoy talking to some like minded individuals!
All in all - this is a pretty poor review, and it completely misses the point of, what is, a perfectly reasonable introductory book. If you want a bible - go and buy Ted Hooper's book "Guide to Bees and Honey" - as just about any apiarist will tell you; it's the only book you'll ever need....IF...you already know that you want to keep bees - if you don't, something like this book will undoubtedly help you understand whether you do/can.
