Lessons From the HiveBook - 2014
Bee Time presents Winston's reflections on three decades spent studying these creatures, and on the lessons they can teach about how humans might better interact with one another and the natural world. Like us, honeybees represent a pinnacle of animal sociality. How they submerge individual needs into the colony collective provides a lens through which to ponder human societies.

This is NOT an introduction to beekeeping. But Winston, author of "The Biology of the Honey Bee," shares recent findings on colony collapse disorder, the bees' language, and other important lessons from the hive. Very good!
