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away before varroa, CCD, nosema ceranae, and small hive beetles -- so when it comes to pest management the book is out of date (though the author can hardly be faulted for his lack of immortality, beekeepers may wish to get their guidance on these matters from elsewhere.)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.
Sadly the book has long since been misplaced and nothing I read today, while equally informing, can match the grace and deft touch of the late Richard Taylor.
Well worth the time to read as this is material presented in such a way as to become indelible.
