A few minor quibbles prevent a five star rating, and could perhaps be fixed in future editions. The main one is the absence of specific varroa treatment protocols, e.g oxalic acid trickle, (but the chapter on disease, including varroa, is otherwise very good) which seems surprising given the procedures included for other less vital things than varroa treatment. The photographs need to be sharper. Whilst the text is commendably clear and concise, the book would benefit from more illustrations (e.g. artificial swarming hive manoeuvres). Most beekeepers will have or develop something of an interest in the plants their charges visit. This is hardly touched on in Cramp but it's worth noting that Hooper includes a chapter describing bee-friendly plants and their merits.
The enthusiastic coverage of potential beekeeping careers beyond it just being a hobby should be commended but assuming the book is designed to a length and price, I'd still rather have those varroa treatment details.
