"Keeping Bees With A Smile" by Fedor Lazutin

This book details the management methods used in The Modified Layens Hive.  An excellent, well reasoned yet simple read. I highly recommend every beekeeper own this resource - it is the one book I reach for over and over again.

An amazing wealth of information and some of the best bee photography you'll ever see.  Principals of the hive that every beekeeper should understand and utilize in their beekeeping decisions.  Worth it for the pictures alone.

The hive as an evaporator/condenser instead of a ventilator.  A very compelling read for the open minded beekeeper.
