I am enjoying the book and find it interesting. However, I do think it could have been written better. I had some issues with the continuity and sequencing of the book which was confusing to me at times. Also the book was in sore need of quality photos, graphic organizers, and illusrations to support the text...the few that were included were too small. The book had an intimacy and personal approach that was endearing to the author's personal journey and relationship to honey. This personalness of the book was a positive trait. It's just that sometimes it felt annoying because I felt I wanted more about the subject. This book should be a companion piece to another book about honey history. I am definately going to check out The Short History of the Honey Bee by Edward Readiker Henderson.
