informative, well read book.

What did you like most about The Wonders of Beekeeping?

Nothing in particular, just wanted to learn a little about what it's all about and what it entails.

What other book might you compare The Wonders of Beekeeping to, and why?

I can't compare it to any other.

What does Alex Norton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Nothing, but I don't know if this book is available in braille so maybe can't read anyway.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

no but I don't think it was meant to evoke emotions.

Any additional comments?

Even though I'm not going to keep bees, I still found this book interesting as I like learning about new things. I wonder what was missing from the unabridged book and why it was edited.

Good book for the beginner

I enjoyed this beginner bee book, (have listened to it a dozen times) the only drawbacks are that it is British and some info isn't easily absorbed by this American. For instance, temperatures are reported in Celsius, seasons I'm not sure if they correspond to my location. And he uses British national hives instead of the Langstroth that most Americans use. Well worth the $ for the info
