This is a good starter to the art of beekeeping. Although if you're serious on trying, you'll want to consult more thorough research (and the author gives a list of resources at the end). Still, this provides a simple introduction on what is needed, the process, and the life of the honeybee. If you want to understand the basics and see what the buzz is about, this is a good book to begin with. It also includes colorful pics and honey recipes!
