A good way to disappoint some new beekeepers making it sound that simplistic. The author supposedly has 28 years experience and should know better.

Very over simplified and has been read 128,585 times.  That's a shame. That is setting up a lot of people for disappointment.  There is no mention of finding a local bee club, reading material, or finding a mentor.

This is what struck me about it.  It might be helpful if you lived under a rock and didn't know what beekeeping even was, but there's really no concrete information here at all.
