    A good book easy to read, and has lots of facts well in it. I will not be a beekeeper, but has information that willhelp to understand what you’re looking when you see the bees “do things” Rating: 4 / 5

    The author makes the big attempt at writing a novel instead of trying to teach beekeeping. If you know the bee and get bored, you might like this book. On the other hand, if you are a beginner, this book is not for you despite the claims made by the book and its author. I would recommend Beekeeping: A Practical Guide by Richard Bonney and the new starting right with bees. Frankly, these are lighter, have more pictures to help describe what they are talking, and are easy reference. When I read books that often forget things, so I wish I could go back and reread some parts on the subject. From Sue Hubbell’s too hard to make your book into a novel, trying to revise a topic is nearly impossible. Rating: 1 / 5
