Authoritive and covers many unusual aspects,
This review is from: Guide to Bees & Honey: The World's Best Selling Guide to Beekeeping (Paperback)
The book is full of concise clear and authoritative advice. What I especially like is some of the aspects which could be counted as peripheral but which add so much knowledge and inform decisions. For example, a chunk about the heat required in the hive and how it is maintained and the implications of different variations from the ideal. A smaller section on the sound of the buzz and how it relates to the speed of the wings sounds comparatively unimportant but when you are out trying to identify flitting insects it can add that little something to help the identification. This wasn't the first book I read so you would imagine that some sections were less fresh and consequently of less interest. This is not the case; I have been entranced by what I have read so far (two thirds of the way through). My family might just say it is because I am obsessed. They may have a point!
