  1. Hi James, I’m thoroughly enjoying your book. So easy to read, interesting
    and your enthusiasm for the subject is captivating. For someone like me,
    who is not a prolific reader, it’s an ideal book. I can pick it up and put
    it down and just carry on from where I left off. I’m now busy trying to
    find a course to get on as our local bee keeping association is pretty
    lapse and only appear to run courses every couple of years ! Now running
    through your videos :)

  3. Great book James, just started reading it. I have just taken over some old
    hives that need repairing, no bees yet plan to get them next year. Thats
    were books like yours help introduce the new beekeeper, but also a great
    read for anyone.

  8. I cannot wait to read this book, I don’t keep bees, but love all things to
    do with nature and I garden for the benefit of bees and butterflies – so I
    am sure this will be fascinating. Wish you loads of luck as you try to
    carry on with this valuable task – many don’t realise how valuable bees are
    to us and how in jeopardy they are. I can’t wait for the US release so have
    pre-ordered from the UK.

  19. hi, have enjoyed your clips, althought I was going to take the beahaus
    route, I eventually went for home made top bar hives, more natural for the
    bee’s, but less honey, but like yourself, don’t want to gorge myself with
    honey anyway, also Im not a big drinker, but am giving mead making a go, my
    first attempt, if you click on my name, theres a short clip or two of me
    collecting my first ever swarm from the tracks of a london underground
    station…

  20. Hey James, as a Bee Keeper my self I can certainly relate to nearly every
    thing you say. I have kept Bees on and off since I was a child for 30 years
    or there abouts. I keep and breed Bumble Bees and Honey Bees and one one of
    the very first people in the UK to successfully Breed White Tail and Red
    Tail Bumble Bees and as far as I know the only one that breeds Carder
    Bumble Bees. All that I learned was from studying the Bees them selves and
    Bee Keepers.
