Product description

Review

"[Goulson’s] book is not only enormously informative, but also hugely entertaining: its light touch and constant humour make cutting-edge research a pleasure to read about… For anyone interested in the natural world, this is essential reading." (Michael McCarthy Independent)

"Goulson reminds himself that he ‘began studying bumblebees not because they are important pollinators but because they are fascinating, because they behave in interesting and mysterious ways, and because they are rather loveable.’ It’s worth reading A Sting in the Tale for the same reasons." (Hannah Rosefield Literary Review)

"A worthy book of the year." (Mary Beard Observer)

"Goulson has plenty of wondrous biological stories to tell, as well as the tale of his own struggle to return the short-haired bumblebee to Britain." (Patrick Barkham Guardian)

"This isn’t one of those natural science books that simply tells you things – it admits how much we don’t know." (Mark Mason Spectator)

Book Description

One man’s quest to save the bumblebee…
