5.0 out of 5 stars The best beekeeping book there is! Dec 24 2012
By Patrick Freivald - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A practical guide to almost-modern beekeeping, Richard Taylor's opus covers everything from hive management to honey sales to wax processing to swarm capture to keeping your neighbors from thinking you're crazy. (Spoiler alert: you can't, so just roll with it.) Much of the knowledge I hear at beekeeping meetings are reiterations of things that Richard Taylor already knew, and wrote about here.

I consult this book often, and have re-read it a dozen or more times cover to cover.

The only caution I would give is that Taylor passed away before varroa, CCD, nosema ceranae, and small hive beetles -- so when it comes to pest management the book is out of date (though the author can hardly be faulted for his lack of immortality, beekeepers may wish to get their guidance on these matters from elsewhere.)

Note: While I'm the president of the Ontario-Finger Lakes Beekeeping Association, my opinions on the book (and well, anything else) are my own, and don't necessarily reflect the views of the club as a whole.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Beekeepers encyclopedia Dec 3 2011

I haven't finished reading this. It has great detail and the latest information available by a skilled beekeeper. Tons of valuable information about bees, keeping bees, the hive, the honey. All good!
