Nothing in particular, just wanted to learn a little about what it's all about and what it entails.
I can't compare it to any other.
Nothing, but I don't know if this book is available in braille so maybe can't read anyway.
no but I don't think it was meant to evoke emotions.
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.
"A good fact filled overview"
A good fact filled overview, a quick listen. If you want a book that gets to the point then this is for you.
"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
Absolutely loved this book. not only was it structured well, it was "not" full of fluff, yet still managed to covered in greater detail than any other book on beekeeping, and as for the narrator (Alex Norton), I wish he narrated more.
