    Hoosier,

    I got one last month too and I think its well beyond anything else out there for TBH beekeepers. It's organized very much like his presentations. Our local club has been lucky enough to get him to come speak and I really like how practical (and logical) his approach is. The book is dense with facts, pictures, experience, and many anecdotes. I highly recommend it.

    It is very complete and if he experienced it he mentions it in the book. For me the best part is the photos. The only bad part is the cost. It is self published so that increases the cost dramatically. I'm sure that if it were published but a traditional publisher they would have cut out 75 percent of the photos and a lot of the text.

    I also have Les Crowder's book, "Top-Bar Beekeeping: Organic Practices for Honeybee Health" and I like it a lot. It is a quicker read, but it is a good book as well. It seems that we went from very few books, to three this year (The Thinking Beekeeper: A Guide to Natural Beekeeping in Top Bar Hives is supposed to come out in November).

    I just ordered the book also. I don't have any TBH's, but I have been investigating them as an option for next Summer. Thanks for the Link to the book!

    I received the book yesterday and I agree that it is very detailed and lots of good info! I don't have any TBH's yet, but I think I will try a couple next Spring.
