However, for the Kindle edition, about 4 chapters into the book I found that words were missing and there were excessive typographical errors. I don't know if these mistakes exist in the original book, or if an Amazon typist got lazy half-way through when converting to a Kindle edition. At first the errors were manageable, but when whole words were missing I found myself trying to figure out what that word must have been in order to make sense of the sentence. It is for this reason alone that I am only giving 4 Stars as opposed to 5. I will say, however, that if you are to purchase any bee book in the Kindle format, this might be the one to choose; most of the content is text, and it's not really meant to be a thick reference book that you'd prefer to have in print (read it once or twice, and you probably won't read it again...you'll likely buy a more comprehensive beekeeping manual).
One other note, and this can be a pro or a con depending on how you look at it. The language used in the book was sometimes a bit too elementary. I'm not at all a snob about this, but I sometimes felt that this intended audience for the book was the local 4H club. I would have preferred slightly better in-depth explanations than simple language. However, I'm confident that my 7-year old can probably read and understand this; so, it's a good book for the whole family to start beekeeping.
