(Forbes) This interesting and readable book is both a personal account and a scholarly magnum opus as Professor Seeley recounts his studies of honey bees. He celebrates the fascinating lives of honey bees, but he argues that by keeping honey bees in a way that respects their needs, we can reduce the frequency of disease outbreaks that they are prone to, and reduce the chances that these diseases may spread amongst native wild bee species and seriously harm them, too.
