I'm not sure beeking is something I'd want to learn from books, must be better to find a local beekeeper. But hopefully someone will know a book that's good.

The Barefoot Beekeeper is worth getting, especially if you want to keep bees in a more natural environment http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1409271145/? ... wnypi5ud_e There's also a lot of good free information on the biobees site and forum http://www.biobees.com/thankyou.php

My wife's been beekeeping for the last 3 or so years. Her response is that nothing beats joining your local beekeeping society or finding a friendly experienced beekeeper to learn from. Most ofthe books that are aimed at beginners really don't seem to cut the mustard and academic books are too dry although much better.
