Reviews

Opening with an overview of beekeeping (hive organization, why bees hate smoke, how honey is collected, etc.), Havenhand answers virtually all bee-related questions before diving into the meat of the book, which extols the myriad alleged benefits of honey.... Those with an affinity for honey (or those who've been harboring a desire to start beekeeping) will find this an entertaining assemblage of tips, history, and trivia. Gloria Havenhand, an English beekeeper and purveyor of honey, delves deeply into the health-giving benefits of various bee creations. ... Barnett's mouthwatering photographs look good enough to eat, oozing and dripping with what Havenhand calls "the natural riches of the hive."--Adam Levine"Better Homes and Gardens" (05/01/2012) A timely look at the beneficial properties of honey and other bee products such as pollen, royal jelly and beeswax.--Valerie Berenyi"Calgary Herald" (09/15/2011)
