Very hard to follow

While the content is ok, the narration is very distracting with a lot of mispronunciation and starts and stops at weird points in the sentence. I fully respect that the English language can be difficult if it is not your mother language, but having a narrator of a 3+ hour educational book struggle with it just made this one a little tough for me.

Exceptional A-Z for the Aspiring Beekeeper

The information serves as a great refresher. Exceptional resource for the New and Seasoned Beekeeper as a reference GoTo.

The narration used would be my only criticism, very flat and electronic.

Hard to listen

The content of the book is great! Listening however, I feel like I am in science class where someone is reading their essay and their first language is not English. It is a little hard to listen. Some things I had to replay to know what word was being said and some things are pronounced very different than I am used to. I can only listen in small bite size pieces before I get frustrated and turn it off. I would recommend just reading the book if you have time.

Repetitive

The same information was repeated over and over in different ways. If this book was condensed into half the length that it is, it would be more valuable. I felt time was wasted on trying to lengthen the book and ultimately wasted the time of the reader. The information itself was fairly valuable for someone, like myself, who is new to the subject.

better beekeeping books

Initially I ordered this book because of the reviews. they are deceiving. the narrator pauses unnecessarily and the accent makes it hard to follow. Not very in depth when it comes to actually keeping bees.

Very hard to listen to

The book is narrated by a weird computer voice. I find it impossible to listen to. May be good info but it offends my ears too much to absorb it.

great audiobook

This audiobook contains some basic information about how to get started. It is not meant to be a detailed step-by-step guide, but a good general overview for getting one to start thinking about the important concepts. I just enjoyed this.

Get it now

I thought that this would be a mostly theoretical, boring novel, but I was proven wrong. With each chapter listened it was becoming more interesting. There are so many real stories, which makes for a great book. One of the books that can help you personally improve a lot and rethink your understanding of things you haven't been doing.

It is definitely a great book that will give you several information you can use in Beekeeping. Even if I have to pay for this a hundred bucks, I definitely will. High Quality!

one of the best

Over the years, I've bought similar audio books, but never finished any of them due to lack of interest and/or uninspiring readership. In both ways this audio book had been different.
