A book that is well worth the price
by Kapena Nemo in the United States (12/12/2012)

Brown's book is a must have for beekeepers along the U.S. Atlantic coast.

I dropped off a star because its illustrations while clear and easy to understand aren't in colour.

But it is a book which will get use worn regardless, because you can either go to a subject and pick out what you need, or just poke about from time to time and find well thought out information for beekeeping.
