Re: Thomas D. Seeley's Honeybee Democracy
If you think Seeley's books are good, try listening to him talk in person. He's easy to listen to, and makes the material very interesting. Have your state association try to get him to come and give a presentation. You won't be sorry. Tom's also a "disciple" of Roger Morse, who I believe (2nd to G.M. Doolittle) was the greatest beekeeper who ever lived.
