All the Buzz on Bees and Beekeeping

#1 Bestseller in Entomology

What happens when a writer sets up a backyard beehive? You get a book full of fun and fascinating facts on bumblebees, honeybees, worker bees, and the rest of our favorite pollinators.

A bee swarm of trivia, tips, legend, and lore. Writer and beekeeper Jack Mingo lives with half a million bees. So, it’s safe to say he’s picked up a thing or two at his bee farm. In this collection of humorous, unique, and often unusual observations, Mingo shows us a glimpse of the mystical and matriarchal world of bees and bee culture.

A book full of bee facts, anecdotes, and advice. How many legs do bees have? Enough not to crowd your bed at night. They don't track mud or fleas into the house, and if you leave them in the yard they won’t bark and whine. They greet you with honey and beeswax, not dead mice. And these are just some of the reasons bees make the best pets. Whether you’re flirting with beekeeping, looking to save the bees, or growing into your role as reigning queen bee, there’s something new to learn. Step into Mingo’s quirky hive to get a taste of tidbits like:

  • The role of bees in the Civil War
  • The legend of caroling bees on Christmas Eve
  • The color and quality of local honey

Good Stuff from Growing Up in a Dysfunctional Family

In Every Bad, There’s Some Good─And A Lesson to Be Learned

Twenty-four survivors recount their stories of living in a dysfunctional family. It isn’t always easy. You can’t choose your situation or where you come from, but you can choose the lessons you take away.

Is there a silver lining to growing up in a dysfunctional family? Bestselling recovery author Karen Casey looks at stories of people who grew up in dysfunctional families and "the good stuff" that can come from the experience. "Throughout my many decades in recovery rooms I have interacted with thousands of women and men whose journeys reveal, in detail, the harrowing history of dysfunction that has troubled their lives," says Casey. "But what is also apparent in their stories is their eventual and quite triumphant survival, often against extreme odds."

From 24 families rife with dysfunction. Casey interviews the survivors who emerged from the fires of a turbulent household to willingly share their stories and come to realize they had, surprisingly, thrived as the result of their often-harrowing experiences. In The Good Stuff from Growing Up in a Dysfunctional Family, Casey reveals the stories and the skills these survivors developed to live more creative and fulfilling lives.

In this book find tales that help you to:

  • Realize lessons in disguise
  • Acknowledge your personal growth
  • Point out your own silver lining

Meatonomics

Stop Being Manipulated by the Animal Foods Industry

Stop the meat industry from eating into your wallet. Few Americans are aware of the realities of the economic system that supports our country's supply of animal foods. Yet these forces affect us in ways we can hardly imagine. Though we only fork over a few dollars per pound of meat products at the grocery store, we end up paying much more than that in tax dollar-fueled government subsidies—$38 billion more, to be exact. And that's just one layer of hidden costs. But with the help of sustainability advocate and author David Robinson Simon's Meatonomics, we can come up with informed, lasting solutions.

Improve your health, your life—and the world. Animal food producers influence our buying choices with artificially low prices, misleading messages, and heavy legislation and regulation control. But learning how these forces work can help you improve both your personal life and the world in so many important ways. Life-changing foods like those in a plant-based diet will do more than just improve your waistline. The information in Meatonomics can help you save money, lose weight, live longer, boost your health, protect animals and the planet from abuse, and preserve rural communities worldwide.

Learn to make better, more informed decisions on what to buy and how to eat. In Meatonomics, Dr. David Robinson Simon uses his excellent truth-finding skills, garnered from his expertise as a lawyer, to show you:

  • How government marketing is influencing what we think of as healthy eating
  • Just how much of our money is being burnt through by the meat production industry
  • What we can do to change ourselves and our country for the better

If you were fascinated by sustainable food and healthy eating books like ProteinaholicEating Animals, or How Not to Die, you'll be empowered to overcome the meat industry's manipulation with Meatonomics.
