Until very recently there has been a dearth of books specific to top bar beekeeping and to natural beekeeping. If you have an interest in either or both, this is a book you will enjoy. Christy has named it well. It is a thoughtful book that gives you more than just a formula. Real beekeeping is an art and art requires thinking and understanding and judgement rather than rules and time tables. In the end, of course, this is acquired through experience but Christy lays a good groundwork of understanding while at the same time giving detailed practical advice. It is clear that she has much experience at answering beginner's questions as she anticipated them so well. I love her concise, efficient, yet eloquent use of language and logic. A very useful book that, because of her style, is also very pleasant to read.

This is the first top-bar book written for the beginning backyard beekeeper. All the essential topics are presented in a way that makes it fun to read and easy to understand. Highly recommended for top-bar "new-bees."
