Masterly… Without hesitation I recommend this book to a wide range of potential readers.—John B. Free, Science

Mark Winston offers a comprehensive account, covering aspects of anatomy and physiology as well as systematics, ecology and behavior… A useful overview of the biology of an insect that holds considerable interest for both economic and academic reasons. Rich in descriptive detail and well referenced, it will also serve as a basis for more detailed exploration of particular aspects of honey bee biology.—Sarah Corbet, The Times Higher Education Supplement

This very readable book brings together the wealth of scattered information on the complex honey bee in a way that will serve as a standard for many years.—Roger G. Bland, Science Books & Films

Winston’s writing is brisk and enthusiastic and the book’s illustrations clear and informative. This is a delightful study of an odd, yet oddly familiar, creature.—John R. Alden, The Wall Street Journal
