    Default Anyone know how to get Wyatt Mangums book?

    Sounds like his book is available now, but isn't on amazon. Any clues? I can't drive across the state to see him on Monday, the ten hour round trip is a bit more than I'm willing to go for a book.

    I don't have anything to contribute about getting the book, but here's what I found about the book. The info comes from the "BioBees" forum:

    Top-Bar Hive Beekeeping: Wisdom & Pleasure Combined
    By Wyatt A. Mangum, PhD

    This book is a comprehensive TBH book: 421 big pages, 8 by 11 inches, 12 Chapters, 350+ photographs most color, except 24 infrared pictures of nocturnal wildlife in my apiaries, seen in B&W, groundbreaking beekeeping photography.

    The book shows how to build TBHs up to five-feet long, various sugar syrup feeders, queen cages, queen excluders, queen mating nucs, and even pollen traps, and more.

    Also …
    Install packages the right way.
    Get the new colony established and ready for winter.
    Get straight combs–finally.
    Handle new combs–correctly.
    Avoid comb meltdowns.
    “Process” honey and sell it with creative honey packaging, all with no expensive extractor.

    In addition to all aspects of TBH beekeeping: honey production, wax production, crop pollination, queen production, package bee production, and pollen collection, I will show bee management detail with special close-up photographs. The TBH management chapter is a small book unto itself, running about 100 pages with 96 color photographs.

    In short, this is the must-have book of TBH beekeeping.

    More details…
    The book cost $45 (Keep in mind production costs were high and it took 25 years to gain the required experience to write it. Since the book has 421 pages and color pictures back-to-back, the paper is high quality. The binding is a smyth binding, which means the pages are sewed together (and glued) so they will not fall out (rather than only glued into the binding, a cheaper "perfect" binding). (I learned a lot about constructing and printing books.)

    Yes, I saw that on bio bees. This is how I knew the title. I emailed the doc a couple months ago Shan I heard he had a tbh book coming out. He wouldn't tell me the title of the book, which I thought was a little different. I guess he didn't want me rushing out and writing a book and using his title or something. (like that is going to happen!) I guess it is self published. I would like to get a copy though since there are so few top bar books.

    The website just went online a short time ago. I will put additional pictures and information for top-bar hive beekeepers in the coming weeks.

    He also replied to me when I placed the order. Well, he replied to my other half as that is the name on the PayPal account! I thought that was nice.

    Got mine in the mail earlier today. It is a substantial book. Haven't had a chance to read any of it yet, but the text is not too small like one of our other bee books, and it looks like it has a good number of photos. Just a quick skim leads me to believe that if it is about top bar hives it is covered in the volume. Or put another way, you may not agree with everything that Dr. Mangum does, but you will certainly know how he does what he does.

    I just got in Les Crowder and Heather Harrells' book, Top-Bar Beekeeping: Organic Practices for Honeybee Health. From the skim it looks great!

    Glad to see the new books coming out. The area of tbh's is sorely lacking in that area. We need many different, experienced perspectives in print, so that more people can get educated on the subject and try beekeeping with tbh's. Mangum's site is interesting on its own...

    Another one is coming out in November: The Thinking Beekeeper: A Guide to Natural Beekeeping in Top Bar Hives, by Christy Hemenway from Gold Star Honeybees. We have it on pre-order as well.
