Global Hive

To me this is a seminal book on the bee crisis which has changed the way I work with bees. Many will be resistant to the ideas in the book but to others it will give new eyes.  There are a dozen of quotes I could pick from this book, but I'll limit myself to these two:

"Thinking and feeling run on different tracks. This can be clearly seen in beekeepers who form strong emotional attachments to their hives, yet treat their bees with scientific detachment. Like everyone else, they suffer from the intellectual epidemic of our time. The mindset that separates bees into their parts also separates emotion from understanding."

"Knowledge separated from emotional relatedness is prone to abuse."

An essay on the bees crisis with a big message.
