Disappointed and should have been edited

The content was not very detailed. The reader made multiple reading errors in chapter 5 and it should have been edited out. Also, the reader was reading to fast.

Reading Deficiency

Audible listeners are very tolerant of the need to repeat a phrase, however repeating a phrase 4 times is unacceptable.

Terrible editing job

As a novice in the area of beekeeping I cannot speak to the accuracy of the contents of this book. However, I've listened to many audible books in the past and this is the first book that I have ever had to stop listening to because someone didn't take the time to edit out the do overs in the reading. If I were the author I'd be incredibly embarrassed.

disappointed

hated this book. I listen to a ton of books and rarely leave a review. reader speaks way to fast. audio is not edited and has several mistakes. however it's the connect that is disappointing. the context covers a wide variety of beekeeping aspect in 45 mins... very broadly.

Love this!!!

What made the experience of listening to Beekeeping the most enjoyable?

There was plenty of information that was helpful in this book. Some I have already learned but is still very useful information obviously. The one thing I would mention that I felt was lacking was this.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes i heard it in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

It was mention I believe at least 3 to 4 times that you should leave enough honey for the bees to eat over winter and I would think maybe other times when plants were in drought conditions.

An Excellent Resource To Get Started On Beekieepin

What was one of the most memorable moments of Beekeeping?

This is a good beginners book to help get started in beekeeping. It is easy to understand and was perfect for me to listen to during my drive to work. My interest in beekeeping is mainly for sustainable living and the enjoyment of being able to harvest honey in its purest form. Listening to Beekeeping has taught me some practical tips and inspired me to make my own honey.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook is organized and narrated in a very engaging manner, which can be challenging for instructional books.
