Published in 2010, this volume is one of newest beginner’s books in the apicultural literature. Authored by Dr. Malcolm T. Sanford in part as an update to several books previously published by Richard E. Bonney (deceased), it provides as full a guide to beekeeping as any other in its genre. See a major review of the contents published 2012 in the Florida Entomologist, and one opinion of it’s worth at Garreson Publishing.
