I find honeybees so fascinating that I was thrilled to begin this book. The thrill dissolved quickly, but I remained hopeful. I don't like leaving books unfinished (when I do, it usually due to book-ADD--so much to read, so little time), and I don't like giving books poor ratings. This one was so poorly-written that I couldn't bring myself to plod more than a quarter of the way through its 300+ pages of irrelevant fluff for the few particles of sensible information it contained.

I have trouble with the "lite journalism" style of this book. It's too repetitive by far --and by "repetitive" I mean giving the same tiny bit of information three times on the same page, in the same words.

Don't Let This Volume of Sweetness Buzz Past!

WOW! Have I ever been missing out! Cal Orey has explored every facet of the luscious nectar, from bee to baked goodies to medicinal properties and beyond. I’m betting your mouth will water like mine has, over the wonderful var

I have been reading parts of this, off and on, since receiving it as a gift last fall. Finally finished in its entirety, but I know I will use this as a permanent reference source for years to come. This book kind of changed my life....honey is absolutely amazing!

There are much better books on the subject. It is a little to folksy for me. To much about the writer not enough about the subject.

The recipes were useful.
