If you are serious about bee breeding/queen rearing, you should probably have this book as an additional reference. As this is the first book I have read on the subject, I cannot recommend another book. I can recommend checking with your county extension offices and/or your state universities to see if they have more information on this subject or offer classes.
The University of Minnesota offers a class on Queen Rearing every summer. This year it will be over July 7-9, 2006. Here's the link: [...]
I took this same class in July of 2004. It offered hands-on experience where everyone in the class got a chance to graft queens and learn the process of queen rearing. Lots of good class-room time and literature. If you have the option of doing something like this, I would strongly recommend it.
I would highly recommend this book to any fairly knowledgeable beekeeper or those who are prepared to put in a bit of extra time to understand some of the genetic material.
The descriptions of rearing queens are great as well.
