about

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.
Mark L. Winston is Academic Director of the Centre for Dialogue at Simon Fraser University, and Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What time is it? It's Bee Time! I was stung by this book, in a good way with the pun intended. It's a fascinating, eye-opening read about an insect that we directly depend on for our livelihood. There is decline in honeybees due in large part to human intervention but there is also possible solution to combat the doom scenario. My favourite chapter was Being Social which gave me insights into bees that I didn't know and tickled my brain cells, which was a good sign that this was a good read. Apparently, the expression busy bee is not true, rather the opposite and bees have been crowd sourcing from the beginning of their existence and humans only caught on in last decade, and so much other gems-packed information are found in the chapter and through out this book. I also felt a lot of love from the author for his subject and it show through the tone of the writing, which was accessible and can I say soothing and calming in a good way. P.S. Honey has no expiry date, hence it is going into my doomsday-dystopia-end-of-the-world supply bag. Trust me cardboard will taste and go down better with a little help from honey.
