    I do not recommend this book, except for its historical value, it is difficult to understand unless you are familiar with the way people talked 150 years ago. Rating: 2 / 5

    Great book! I’ll read it again. There is much to learn from L ole triple.Los modern books are those that depend for daily use. Also, I’d recommend the bee hive Dadant and a more updated and much thicker libro.Las only complaints I have are from Dover. The price is too high. The print is quite small in the main text, but is very small in the notes. Since some of the notes are very long this is a real problem. Furthermore, it must have been printed from photographic prints instead of composing. Many of the letters of the alphabet are cut and that sometimes takes a while to understand what was intended for content palabra.En I give 5 stars, but the print quality it gets 3 stars. Average that out to 4 stars. Rating: 4 / 5

    This classic describes the insightful observations and knowledge of the father of modern beekeeping. It is dated, but very interesting. Rating: 5 / 5
