A Spring without Bees

A Spring without Bees: How Colony Collapse Disorder Has Endangered Our Food SupplyA Spring without Bees: How Colony Collapse Disorder Has Endangered Our Food Supply by Michael Schacker

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


I couldn't finish this book. It reads like a repetitive alarmist rant. When the author started making mostly unsubstantiated conspiracy theory allegations against higher education and American media I hit my limit. Coming into the subject of bees and colony collapse disorder (CCD) with little knowledge of either I was hoping for an introduction to bees, CCD, and an unbiased exploration of what might be leading to it. I found none in this book. While there maybe truth in some of what the author says it is hidden among a writing tone and style that makes me distrust him more than the supposedly corrupt institutions he continually lambasts.
