I'm interested in purchasing the book 'The Hive and The Honeybee'. From what I have seen on Amazon and such, there are many editions and wanted to hear which I should consider. Please tell me your thoughts about which edition and why you prefer it.

As far as I know, the newest edition was published in 1992. A lot has changed in beekeeping in the last 20 years. I'm hoping for a new edition to come out, but I haven't heard anything. If you're going to plunk down over $50 for a book, I would get The ABC & XYZ of Bee Culture. It is fairly current. Amazon has it here: http://www.amazon.com/ABC-XYZ-Bee-Culture-Encyclopedia/dp/093602822X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1431200099&sr=8-1&keywords=The+ABC+%26+XYZ+of+Bee+Culture

As far as The Hive and The Honeybee, there is a free download available of an early edition. A lot of the basics haven't changed, and many of the changes aren't in the 1992 edition. Check archive.org for the free download of that and other books.
