Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 7 June 2009
Beekeeping is a bit like playing the guitar. You can carry on strumming your three chords if you like, or you can go on to the more advanced stuff. This book will take you from the beginning stage to a fairly advanced one in one slim volume. Beekeeping is a big subject encompassing many different subjects within it, and for Ted Hooper to have covered every aspect so thoroughly in a mere 260 pages, much of which are taken up with useful photographs and illustrations, is nothing short of miraculous. This is a new edition, and I have seen comments that it is already out of date for the British beekeeper. One thing I like about it is that is it specifically aimed at the British beekeeper. As for being out of date, I suppose this refers to the chapter on pests and diseases, and I think it an unfair criticism. Any book dealing with bee diseases and their treatments will have obsolescence built in, and it is clear that Hooper is well aware of this. It is the responsibility of the beekeeper to keep abreast of the latest developments in bee health, and no general textbook will do this for you. This book accomplishes extremely well what it sets out to do.
