'A real pleasure to read. Not only is it an excellent book to get you started but it has plenty for the more experienced beekeeper too. The book is written in a user friendly easy to read style. You don't actually realise that you are absorbing quite a lot of scientific information, but you are. At GBP14.99 ($30.00)that must be a bargain of the year' Smallholder --Smallholder
