Outdated and Exploitational Approach

Most of the general information is more-or-less correct, but when the details are explained there is outdated information and some stuff that is plain wrong. The author seems only interested in maximizing their honey production in such a way that treats the bee hive like a resource property to be exploited.

possible for any family to do beekeeping

I used to think that I would not possibly be able to do beekeeping in my backyard cause I am afraid of the bees. With how the narrator laid it down, I think it is possible for any family to do beekeeping and eventually, harvest their own honey for personal use or for selling.

Great insights and support on how to make it

I like how the book highlights how to take care of the bees. Beekeeping is not really as hard as it seems. The author provided great insights and support on how to make it possible. And it is all natural!
