Praise for Bee Wilson's The Hive:

'Richly informative and beautifully written'

(The Times)

Entertaining and thoroughly worthwhile (Sunday Times)

Can hardly be bettered (Guardian)

Fascinating, careful, witty and intelligent ... Almost any paragraph chosen at random is entertaining (Prue Leith, New Statesman)

Fascinating (Humphrey Carpenter, Sunday Times)

Buzzes with info and has the prettiest dust-jacket of the third millennium (Barry Humphries, Sunday Telegraph)

Erudite, informative, accurate and a delight to read. (Times Literary Supplement)

'There are delights and surprises on virtually every page of this gem of a book' (Sunday Telegraph)

'Wilson's sprightly hymn to the honeybee ... conveys ... the marvel, complexity and ultimate unknowability that has made the beehive such a fascination' (Independent)

'A brilliant examination of a natural phenomenon we all take for granted' (Sunday Express)
