Format: Paperback
If you are getting into beekeeping, thinking of getting into beekeeping, or just want an incredible insight into the present state of the industry, this is the first book you should read. Even if you are a natural beekeeper using Top Bar or Warre hives, read this book. Most books on this subject rehash 150 years of the same thing. Mr Flottum has produced a "straight to the point", easy to understand, book on the present state of the industry, why and what the keeper can do about it. There are excellent photos that go along with the excellent information provided in this book.

At Last! Oct. 10 2011
By Matthew J. Meyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
At last a book on beekeeping which doesn't give instructions on how to hive a package! This is the book I've been waiting for as its contents are intended for those of us who are beyond the basics and using beekeeping as a means of income. The overlying theme of the book is to form an understanding of where one wants to be as a beekeeper and the concerns to address in order to formulate a solid business plan to get there. The book does a fabulous job of bringing up points for consideration while acknowledging the multiple paths and solutions to the various conditions and means of keeping bees. I appreciated the overall slant towards natural beekeeping and the honesty regarding the current state of beekeeping. Kim's best work yet, thanks for a great book!

Book arrived on time and in excellent condition. April 6 2012
By Jessica - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great bee book! I'm a new hobbyist beekeeper and I have most of Flottum's books, so I didn't think this book would contain anything new. I was surprised to learn this was not the case, and I devoured it, which isn't hard to do considering the frequent and informative color photos. I have already referred back to this book several times since I've owned it, as well as used the photos to illustrate something to my "non-bee" family members. Worth the money!!

Good book for advanced/commercial beekeeper June 19 2012
By K. Redden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am a hobbyist beekeeper with several years of experience. Some of the information was over my head, but a lot of it is very useful. The section on queens is worth the cost of the book alone. If you are a commercial beekeeper I think you owe it to yourself to buy this book. You can download it to a Kindle for about half what the bee supply catalogs want for it.

Bee Books Dec 6 2012
By Roger A. Wilke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Better Beekeeping is ok but The Backyard Beekeeper, by the same author, is better. Better Beekeeping seems to be directed to the person who wants to make a business out of bees. The hobbyist will be more satisfied by the other choice.

Surprisingly, I am becoming less and less of a Kim Flottum fan Feb. 9 2013
By Kathleen Hinkle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ya, I know - Kim Flottum - the bee keeping czar. About 40% of this book is useful (maybe less) to me. Kim Flottum is all about expanding your beekeeping business with automation, buying/renting acreage, extracting and selling for the highest price possible - so you can buy more equipment - to save more time (Flottum mantra "time is money") - to expand your bee business more, and more. I am a beginner. Right now, I am about learning about bees, not USING bees. Right now, bees are my friends and I want to help them because they help me. I'm not into bee slaves. I need to learn in order to work with the bees, not in order to use them up.
