I loved every moment of this book, it has given me so many ideas and ways to get into the farming business faster, and more safely than I had originally thought possible. Joel is a great narrative for his own books, he is able to make you feel the emotions he has for his farm and his animals. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in small, sustainable farming.

Very excellent, excellent research. Reader has a soft voice and had to turn up volume significantly. Would still listen again and again, I hope there will be a follow-up in the future as Science improves and grows.

At first, I felt as other reviews felt, kind of eye rolling due to the mysticism. But after listening not once but twice, I now believe that this book is essential to any beekeeper who wants to preform bee-centric bee-keeping. There are some claims of anthropomorphism done on the Bees in other reviews, though I do not agree with this. The Author gives a very distinct view as to bee life, that does not relate to any other being on the planet, and is definitely not humanized nor definitively assigning any form of human emotion to bee actions, and in fact the Author states that when she feels they are acting empathically it is strictly her belief and observation. Also, I feel anyone who has spent time near a hive would agree with many of her comments or description of bee behaviour. I feel that this book combined with scientific data regarding the benefits of propolis for example would make this book more applicable to the Scientific Mind. Though, in this state, I believe that the book can offer important personal lessons as well, such as being part of the collective universe rather than thinking of ourselves as individuals. Would recommend and read again.

A beautiful gift, that all who read must reciprocate with change, and following the grass path.
