Paul Peacock is a writer and broadcaster on environmental topics. A beekeeper for many years, he has been training allotment holders to keep bees in the inner city. He has written 20 books on self sufficiency and is a panellist on BBC4’s Gardeners Question Time.

Pam Gregory started beekeeping in 1975 after moving to Wales during the ‘back to the land’ movement. She worked first at the National Bee Unit laboratory then in the field as a seasonal bee inspector, qualifying as a Master Beekeeper in 1986 and gaining the prestigious National Diploma in Beekeeping in 1991.

Claire Waring has kept bees since 1980 and been involved with beekeeping associations ever since, serving as General Secretary of the British Beekeepers’ Association from 2004 to 2005. She is Editor of Bee Craft, the leading UK beekeeping journal and is currently writing a Bee Manual.

As a member of a Bee keeping association (and you should all join your local one if you want to keep bees) we used to recommend Ted Hooper's excellent book but it was always a bit too technical for an absolute beginner whereas Pam Gregory's new book is perfect for the beginner. It covers beekeeping month by month so you know exactly what you should be doing and looking out for in your hives and when, and there are more advanced techniques covered as well.

I wish that I'd been given this book last year as I started keeping bees. The wonderful pictures show every detail clearly and the information is explained in a way that is good for beginners and those of us with some bee-keeping experience. It has helped me make sense of my first year of bee-keeping. I'm sure it will be well read over the next few year - too useful to put away! I'm going to recommend it to my bee-keeping friends.

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.
