The only negative would be if you were buying it thinking it would contain all you needed to start keeping bees. It will not meet your needs if that is what you are wanting. This been in conjunction with beekeeping for dummies is a great combination for that.
For a complete newbie, he still recommends Beekeeping for Dummies - very informative read, you'll learn the essentials in this step-by-step how-to.
Fifty Years Among the Bees -also a good read.
Everything, literally, everything you might need to know as a beekeeper is in this book. That aside, it is a beautiful piece of literature. It has a weight and feel that matches its content.
This book, by far, taught me more than any other resource on beekeeping. And, it was enjoyable to read.
The history section was very interesting.
The practical application section is useful for getting ideas and for feeling like you're on the right track. It's nice to get a lot of different perspectives. Among other things, it goes into great detail on what plants produce what kind of honey, and when these plants bloom. On occasion, however, you would have to look somewhere else to get a more in-depth explanation on how to do something. Example: they mention what creamed honey is, but not a practical guide on how to make it.
I'm not sure what I was expecting from the recipe section, but the recipe section was underwhelming. Maybe I will warm up to it once the summer is in full swing and we have some fresh honey to use.
In all, I really like this book. It's an excellent resource. It lost a star because I feel it could have gone into more detail in many instances.
