My books were sent to the wrong place and I got someone else's book and it has finally been sorted out. Amazon was great and I now have the Backyard Beekeeper. I'm not terribly far in the book yet but I really like what I've read so far and will continue on each day as time allows.
It is well thought out and not repetitive with lots of valuable information. I know this will be a wonderful reference book for years to come.

Lots of good pictures and information. I haven't made it through it yet, but so far it is meeting my expectations. I'm just learning about beekeeping before I decided on becoming one or not. The book took a long time to arrive (3-4 weeks). I ordered "Beekeeping for Dummies" two weeks later and it arrived within 4 days.

Very good. I just got into beekeeping and have read several books. This one is wonderful It explains many details that other books miss and includes lots of photos, which is very useful as reference for someone with no prior experience in beekeeping.
