Since there is no dedicated topic heading for book reviews here in these forums I will put an entry here. Admins please relocate if this is an inappropriate thread, thank you. The first addition for this noob to my beekeeping library is titled 'The Hive And The Honeybee'. Dadant and Sons editors/publishers. © 1946, 1949, 1963, 1975. Fourth printing 1978. Library of Congress catalog card number: 63-15838 Hardcover 740 pages. This seems to be quite an all encompassing tome. 22 chapters profusely illustrated. I will reserve an opinion and thus an educated assessment due to my inexperience. Suffice it to say I have my plate full for starters and as such this seems as good a place as any.

I think my favourite Honey bee book, is Honeybee Democracy, by Thomas D. Seeley. It's not a 'how to keep bees' book, but a compilation of decades of research on them. With his data gained there is excellent insight into bee behaviour, colony dynamics and bee physiology. You can use this information to gain insights to your own bees and it may inform your management practices of how you manage your hives. If you're a 'how and why' thinker, not a 'what and when' person, then this excellent book is for you.
