Very detailed book on beekeeping. Pretty much it goes into detail about why you shouldn’t take up the profession and how difficult it is. That isn’t at all bad instead you appreciate the honesty of the author and how passionate he is about the subject. It is serious work and a life of utter dedication that he conveys with specific data, diagrams, and information. A great book on the subject.
