UK Kirkus review
This wonderful, accessible book takes beekeeping as a starting point for talking about everything under the sun. An American, Winston is a professor of biological sciences at a Canadian university. A scientist first, he became a beekeeper and writer. We are richer for his attempt to bring these diverse worlds together and into sharp focus. Using his own experiences and drawing on a wide range of ideas and examples from popular culture, Winston tells us a great deal about bees, but also about life, how people try to keep contact with nature, the problems of modern agriculture, the accountability of scientists. The 31 essays can be read in order or are equally delightful to dip into. (Kirkus UK)
