    I found the book to be a good start for an absolute beginner like me. However, I live in the Caribbean, and the book is geared more to beekeeping in the U.S.. I totally skipped the chapters of winter and after winter their bees. We also have completely different flora. Rating: 3 / 5

    What kind of hives, how to take care of bees, how to select and collect honey and winter them – This book has everything you need to know. I happen to have the 8th edition, 1930, and is as detailed as the new editions. Rating: 5 / 5
