Good book for those who may be interested in keeping bees.

Approaches from the perspective of seasonal management and a year in the life of a hive.

Has many anecdotes from beekeepers around the world keeping bees in the middle of cities, unbeknownst to the general public.

Excellent photos. Introductory level scope of knowledge.
