Summary

Being among bees is a full-body experience, Mark Winston writes. Bee Time presents his reflections on three decades spent studying these remarkable creatures, and on the lessons they can teach about how humans might better interact with one another and the natural world, from the boardroom to urban design to agricultural ecosystems.

Great when it focuses on Bees

Great book but the writer is irritatingly liberal which makes some chapters very political and almost useless.

What a great book!

I really loved this book. It was a great blend of history, facts, and topics which effect bees as well as bee keeping. It was well written and made me read it in one setting. Job well done and thank you for expanding my knowledge of bees.
