   Another Good Beekeeper book
I wouldn't use this as a single source of starting up in beekeeping, but one of many sources. The book is well written with many illustrations and photos of what you are getting into with Honeybee.

For all new beekeepers, it is the best introduction book I have seen so far. Lots of great information is presented in very “user-friendly ” form. If this is your very first book of beekeeping, you do not have to look further.
