Reviews

  • Wonderfully entertaining… Engages the reader as much with the eloquence of its argument as with the charm of its humour

    Mark Cocker, Mail on Sunday

  • Buy this book, give it as a present. It is required reading for being a human in the 21st century.

  • A gripping account of the importance of insects to our environment…. Goulson has an easy-going style and an enthusiastic yet rigourous approach to material that could seem dry … Goulson’s patient attempts to establish a link between [bees’ colony collapse disorder and a new class of insecticide] become as gripping as any forensic thriller.

    Suzi Feay, Financial Times
  • For those who think of science as being dry and boring this book will be a revelation. Goulson’s book is juicy and delicious, layered with flavours and steeped in culture.

  • Glorious… The real pleasure of reading this book is hearing the hum of biodiversity rising from every page.

    Damian Whitworth, The Times
  • A wonderfully entertaining one-man campaign… A blend of scientific evidence and amusing travelogue that engages the reader as much with the eloquence of its argument as with the charm of its humour.

    Mark Cocker, 5 stars, Mail on Sunday
  • An inspirational case for awareness and appreciation of the teeming diversity.

    John Akeroyd, Spectator
  • Urgent and impassioned.
