This is a great book for people just starting to keep bees. I knew absolutely nothing about bees when I got my first hive. I still have a lot to learn, but this book has helped me a lot.

If your new to beekeeping or an old hand this book has the essential information. No book has it all but this one covers a large amount of it. Enough that you could start beekeeping without a mentor (not recommended). Detailed explanations in simple terms makes this book an easy read. Knowing that it is written by a bee pro makes all the difference. It starts out with a honeybee overview, to equipment, installation of a new 'package' of bees. Hive inspections and what to look for (with illustrations). Full coverage of your first year with your 'girls' from brood to honey. A solid reference book!
