"If you think beekeeping is a quick and easy shortcut to wealth, this book will set you straight. . ." —New York Times

A lighthearted, self-deprecating account of one fledgling beekeeper’s misadventures. With wit and warning in equal measure, this informative, refreshingly honest narrative will resonate with any new beekeeper.

In Show Me the Honey Doroghy recounts his often tension-filled misadventures in beekeeping with self-deprecating humour and lightheartedness. Whether it’s the impending chaos of transferring tens of thousands of insects to an outyard, the horror of discovering bees on the inside of his beekeeping suit, or just wondering if he will end up with even an ounce of honey for all his efforts, Doroghy shares the joy, the surprises, and the less-acknowledged financial sting of keeping bees.

Dave Doroghy has worked in radio broadcasting and advertising, and has spent the last 30 years in sports marketing. He was the Vice President of the former NBA Vancouver Grizzlies and more recently the Director of Sponsorship Sales for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.
