Megan provides some detailed lists that take you step by step through processes like checking the hive, harvesting honey, and introducing the queen. Aug 12, Elise rated it it was ok. Might be better if I was ready to actively start keeping bees, otherwise I found it kind of clinical and repetitive.
There are a few good pictures, but mostly I found them random; I had hoped that the pictures would either be abundant and beautiful or that they would help to illustrate the text - they did neither.
I learned a little, I was confused a lot, but I wasn't really entertained or inspired. Maybe I'm just not as interested in urban beekeeping as I thought I was! Stellar beginner's guide I've dreamt of beekeeping for years - taken classes, read numerous books and this one ranks in the top. Very down to earth, easy to understand - Megan builds your confidence thru her experience. This book is very informative and the step by step instructions are clear and concise. The recipes in the end of the book are a delight. I highly recommend to any aspiring beekeeper.

It gave a good overview of what to expect season by season, what happens during hive inspection, harvesting, and capturing swarms A lot of it was taken from the standpoint of using Langstroth hives the most commonly used in the US so I'll have to get educated elsewhere on where things differ with top bar hives what I'd like to use but I intend to keep this book on my shelf.

Feb 05, Garrett rated it it was ok. A little overwhelming on the details of long-term care and underwhelming on the basics and start-up stuff I was looking for; "a Langstroth Hive is about as easy to assemble as furniture from Ikea" is NOT a real description, for instance, and a little cutesy for my tastes, too. Luckily, I got another bee book for Xmas, and there are professionals around my city.
