A Practical Manual of Beekeeping

My best bee-reading to-date is A Practical Manual of Beekeeping: How to Keep Bees and Develop Your Full Potential as an Apiarist, by David Cramp.



Genuinely outstanding, and in parts very funny, too. Hugely recommended.

If, after reading this manual, you develop your "full potential" as an apiarist as the title suggests, won't you be required to re-name your blog to something more along the line of "Diary of a semi-competent or quasi-competent keebeeper? I'd like to take your recommendation to read this manual, as i am hoping to venture into the wide world of beekeping in the spring, however the author's name gives me pause...cramps from an overdose of laugher, perhaps?
