All you need to know about bees and beekeeping are well discussed in this book. I didn’t know that bees can do so much more even for therapeutic uses. I feel a sudden urge to try this in our farm, I’m sure my husband will approve. I think everything that I need to know before I start with beekeeping is here. And I’m glad that there is also information of different hives, so I can choose which one would be best. I’m sure you’ll also learn a lot from this book
This is a fabulous book for the beginning beekeeper or anyone wishing to be more informed about Honey Bees. The text is clear and detailed and contains the information that beginners tend to need and information that is often missing from other beekeeping books. I would say it’s a great book at any price, and for a full color, well illustrated book, I don’t see how you can beat the price.
Beekeeping is very interesting work. It's a good beginner to expert guide to know about beekeeping. You can learn about the advantages of beekeeping, how to start, taking it to the next level, diseases and treatments, some extra advice. I have an interest in beekeeping.

My interest in beekeeping made me purchased this book. There were so many information that were new to me. I got to understand better the bees, how they work and build their hives. Each bee has a specific role depending on its characteristics and nature. I am amazed at how smart, organized, and strong bees can be. They are magnificent creatures. The author is really good at explaining that.It is also good that there are recipes you can have out of beeswax included in this book. Reading this book made me realized that beekeeping is not easy. Beekeeping requires hard work but is very rewarding to you, the bees, and nature. Beekeeping can also be a business but we have to be sure that we do not take advantage so much of the bees in the process.This knowledge that I have about beekeeping that I learned from this book is more than enough for me to get started. I hope many people will be encouraged to take this as a hobby as it is not only beneficial to you but to nature and the bees. If you want to learn more about beekeeping, buy this book.
