Format: Paperback
Not too sexy, but has all the right stuff. This book is a timeless guide to modern-day beekeeping. The pictures are a little dated, and black-white, but the information is sound and professionally written. This book left me feeling well educated and confident. And at this price, it's a deal!

Very appropriate title since this book is packed with useful information for beginning beekeepers. It was definitely worth the money I paid Amazon for this book. The black and white pictures are somewhat outdated but the information provided in this book is timeless. It is divided so that information is easily found and has been a source of reference for us on several occasions.

This is a reprint of a book originally copyrighted in 1924 and written in 1911. The print is very small, which makes it difficult for me to read. Since I'm trying to learn, I guess the information is accurate, but I'm still getting into it.

Written in old English and so is harder to understand. Also, some of the conventions are dated and it doesn't have any recent information. It gives a reasonably good overall concept of beekeeping, but there are more modern books that would do better. Beekeeping for Dummies would be one.

I found "First Lesson in Beekeeping" to be detailed and a timeless introductory book on beekeeping for beginners. Although the language is a bit dated (1911), the information is still valid and worth reading. I acquire my first two hives next month, and this book has been helpful in preparing me for this new phase in my life.

This book may have been helpful many years ago, but it is too outdated to be useful to us in our beekeeping. No mention of varroa mites or different types of bees available. It is a reprint with no updates.

From a beginners standpoint this is an excellent book. This book is packed full of information and an excellent reference. This title gives you the principles you have to know to start seriously thinking about beekeeping.

Besides this book I'll recomend you this one:
The Complete Book Of Beekeeping

I read and re-read this book. I got my order of bees last Saturday from Lincoln, Nebraska. The "ladies" are very happy, the queen is released into the hive........Good reading. Very informative.
