Beekeeping for Dummies is coming out with another addition and upgrades. Should be out soon. The author was very agreeable to many suggestions I made and he told me he incorporated many of my ideas into the new book. We shall see if this is true.

The book I've found most helpful is "The How To Do It Book of Beekeeping" by Richard Taylor.  It's a very practical and common sense type of approach.  He discusses little things never mentioned in most bee books and it is chocked full of information.  He has a great attitude about beekeeping and about life.

I just got word recently that Howland Blackiston (author Beekeeping for Dummies) will have his RERELEASE with 7 or more NEW CHAPTERS that we're covered in 2001 when it went to press.

FYI - the copy you have in from of you has MY PHOTO of a worker on pollen filled cells on the cover and several more inside. In the new version, it will have a different cover, and still contains 5 of my photos, which is cool :_
