Format: Paperback
You can download Warre's original book for free (translated into English), but this book is the only modern incarnation of the natural beekeeping method. It's chock full of photos and information about what bees need in order to stay healthy.

That said, it's expensive since it's not printed in the US, and it keeps referring you back to Warre's book for more information on managing Warre hives.

Every once in awhile a book comes along that becomes the book that every library on the subject must have- this is one of those books. This is the book for everyone that considers themselves Bee"carers" not just beekeepers. If you truly care about honey bees, I guarantee, you will never be sorry you added this book to your personal library. It is an excellent source of information, not just on keeping bees, but also on the art of being a natural beekeeper. Very detailed in beekeeping with the Warre Hive.
I loaned my first copy to a member of my bee club, it is now making it around the club. I have now blessed that book and sent it on it's way and will be buying a second copy for myself.

Pretty much just re-positions much in Heaf's other book and his translation of Abbe Warre's book, which were both excellent. However, I was disappointed that there was not much new in this book and in fact did not have as much information as in his own previous book. For instance, his construction details which were copied from the previous book did not have the Imperial conversions from metric. So if you are to choose which book to get, Heaf's "Natural Beekeeping with the Warre Hive" instead of this one. "The Beefriendly Beekeeper" was harder to get as only English booksellers offered it here in the States when I purchased, so don't bother, especially if you can get his first two books.

When I started keeping bees last year, I bought more than a dozen books to get up to speed, and although this was one of the thinner volumes, it was the clear standout. David Heaf writes beautifully, with both intelligence and charm, and his clear understated style is a a joy to read. If you're interested in beekeeping generally, or in bee-centric beekeeping specifically, you won't go wrong. I now have 6 Warre hives buzzing happily in the Czech Republic thanks to Dr. Heaf, and I hope to soon add more. Great author and great book.
