All in one place... Nov. 10 2011
By Steve B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered this book after reading The Practical Beekeeper, also by Michael Bush. This is several different works compiled into one book. While this information is available other places, it's nice to have it together in one place. I have marked mine by book and it's easy to flip back and forth and compare the methods of the experts. Nice book if you're considering raising a few queens or many.

Should be on the bookshelf of every hobby and professional queen rearer. Dec 2 2013
By Ausie Boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A collection of the major queen rearing books written over the pat 100 years and containing a wealth of information and different views on raising queens. Although there have been published some excellent books on queen rearing published in recent years (Morse, David Woodward to name two), queen rearing has not changed that much over the last 100 years and each of the books collected in this compendium describes the views and techniques of an important queen rearer. Each of the books included is a stand-alone section and contains its own index, thus there is not a single index at the end of the compendium and, if two or more authors describe the same technique, the technique will be covered in more tha one part of the book. This is an excellent source of information on queen rearing and should be on the bookshelf of every hobby and professional queen rearer.

I saw this book on TV, as a prop, in a show my wife was watching. That's not strictly true, though this book has been used as a prop. This book is a valuable bedside companion for beekeepers who want to get busy with queen raising. Classic literature reprinted and compiled. Easy to read font. My only complaint...the book's thick and heavy. So much wisdom to receive.
