"A thorough and thoughtful primer on the interiority of bees."---Mike Welch, Scientific American
"The book's bees astound; so too the clever humans who study them."---Robert Eagan, Library Journal, starred review
"The knowledge on offer here is as entertaining as it is edifying. Readers won't look at bees the same way again." * Publishers Weekly *
"An entrancing journey through the senses and life struggles of bees."---Alun Anderson, New Scientist
The Mind Of A Bee
is a fascinating book that I hope will be read and understood by as broad an audience as possible, so that the important conclusions within may be shared more widely."---Amanda Williams, Buzz About Bees
"This is an amazing book. I give it my highest recommendation."---David Gascoigne, Travel with Birds
"Overall, this is an outstanding book that provides a comprehensive overview of honeybee cognition. It provides a clear introduction to the fi eld for amateur bee lovers as well as a nuanced and up-to-date summary for professionals. By looking at the world through the lens of a bee, readers will develop tools to better understand the distinct and vivid experiences of tiny invertebrates that are too frequently ignored."---Elizabeth A. Tibbetts, Current Biology
"I strongly recommend you read [Chittka's] book and if you will excuse the pun 'make your own mind up'. Science and nature writing at its finest and an essential read."---Roy Stewart, British Naturalists Association
"Written with moments of levity and soaked in curiosity, The Mind of a Bee is a delight."---Eliza Middleton, The Conversation
"Chittka has managed the extraordinary feat of condensing over three decades of research into a single book and in such a way as to make it accessible to the non-expert." * Beekeepers Quarterly *
