Bee Keeping: A Novices Guide
Bee Keeping: A Novices Guide
by David Wootton
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice to look at but no substance, 10 Feb. 2011
This is a beautifully illustrated book but the beekeeping methodology is superficially covered and in many instances is out of date. It reads like a novice beekeeper quoting from a local association training course (and an association dominated by elderly, conservative beeks at that!). Feeding, swarm control, varroa treatment, use of foundation etc are all dealt with in an overly simplified way with no thought given to explaining why a particular method has been adopted and the pros and cons of other approaches. This is clearly written by someone with little practical experience of beekeeping.

5.0 out of 5 stars Desktop replacement, 8 Oct. 2010
If you want a laptop to replace a desktop, and cope with multimedia and modern gaming demands, then there is no better product available at this price.

However, given its size, it's not really very portable and you can buy a more powerful desktop for the same price.

Be sure, therefore, it's what you want - having made that decision it's on the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you really want to help the bees ..., 19 Aug. 2009
This review is from: The Barefoot Beekeeper (Paperback)
This is a simple but brilliant book explaining how to keep bees in a natural, sustainable way. Forget specialist equipment and "traditional" intensive farming methods which stress the bees and lower their natural resilience. A bit of simple woodwork and an empathetic but responsible approach to husbanding a wild animal will reward you with your own honey and, more importantly, help support the dwindling bee population.
If you only buy one book about beekeeping, make sure it's this one.
