STARRED REVIEW Flottum (editor, Bee Culture magazine) brings beekeeping into the backyard with this handbook on keeping hives and harvesting their products. New material on natural beekeeping and "extreme urban beekeeping" will satisfy most readers. — Library Journal Collection Development February 2014
About the Author
Kim Flottum brings a background of twelve years of plant science, honey bee research, and basic farming to his thirty years as the editor of Bee Culture magazine where his main occupation is finding the answers to the multitude of questions that beginning, intermediate, and even advanced and experienced beekeepers bring to the table. He teaches beginning and advanced beekeeping courses, travels extensively to educate and lecture, and contributes to a variety of other publications on the basics of honey bees and beekeeping biology, the business of bees and pollination, producing and using varietal honeys, and a host of other subjects. His books, magazine articles, interviews, and blogs are widely read for both their fundamental and advanced contribution to beekeeping knowledge. His magazine platform gives voice to his social commentary on topics ranging from genetically modified foods to pesticide abuse to both good and bad government regulations in the industry. He is beekeeping’s leading advocate for fundamental honey bee safety including insuring excellent honey bee health, providing extraordinary forage, and minimizing the use of agricultural pesticides.

Look into attracting native pollinators too such as Bumble bees, Mason bees ... Butterflies... All which don't require large, heavy, man made hives. Yet they will also help pollinate your crops... In smaller numbers and no honey.
the thing I don't like at all is the tiny, tiny print. I can only read it in bright light, especially outside on a sunny day. This is very aggravating to me. The only time I have to read is in the evening and without very bright light it is very uncomfortable to try to read it which makes it hard to comprehend and remember what I read.

My only complaint ius there is no mention of mead as a honey product, either in the history or recipes sections.
