What some people say about Interviews with Beekeepers by Steve Donohoe

Despite focusing on beekeeping as a business, many of the management techniques and beekeeping concerns discussed (including queen rearing, varroa treatment and swarming) are of equal concern to the hobbyist, so there is much useful information to be gleaned.

...advanced beekeepers and anyone earning even part of their living from bees will find this nicely produced publication invaluable.

Richard Rickett, BeeCraft Magazine

Although I am only half way through my copy even in these self isolating times, I am finding Interviews With Beekeepers almost un-put-down-able!

I highly recommend this work to beekeepers of all scales, and it would be a great gift if you have an active beekeeper in your family.

Leading online booksellers like Booktopia and Bookdepository, both reliable and readily accessible on the web, have it listed for circa $A38 to $40, postage included.

Just buy it. John Kennedy, Australian Bee Journal

It is perhaps of most value to the beekeeper with some degree of experience, operating on a semi-commercial or commercial basis, or with aspirations to do so. For such individuals, I suspect all will gain ideas to influence their own practices from the detailed conversations relating to husbandry and management
