    Default Looking for reading material suggestions

    I am occasionally out of town with NO internet signal.
    I am looking for suggestion for good informative books (Kindle)
    Any ideas?

    I'd like one on commercial agriculture management too if possible.

    Thank you all in advance!


    I like science based material, non fiction please.
    Here are a couple examples of what I've read and like:

    Beekeeping topics would be great, but need to be advanced enough they are not boring. If they are hard to read and full of details, I'll probably like it.

    If you could direct me to any good studies, I'd appreciate it. I can download them now and read later in camp.

    Can't think of a book right now that would suit your tastes, but if you want something to read that will occupy a lot of your time, you should download the numerous threads on making sugar bricks. J

    Some of this depends on your interests. If you are interested in money and finance, I would recommend "The Wealth of Nations" by Adam Smith and "The Ascent of Money" by Niall Ferguson. I love the classics. Real classics. Like "Huber's New Observations on Bees" or Jan Dzierzon's "Rational Beekeeping", the two most important beekeeping books ever written. Or Sun Tzu's "The Art of War" and Lao Tzu's "Tao Te Ching" and anything by Plato, Aristotle, Epectitus, Pascal etc. As far as more modern bee books, there is "Bee" by Rose-Lynn Fisher, "The Buzz About Bees" by Jürgen Tautz, "Honey Bee Democracy", "The Lives of Bees" and "Wisdom of the Hive" all by Thomas Seeley, "Honeybee Nests: Composition, Structure, Function" and "Honeybees and Wax: An Experimental Natural History"" by H.R. Hepburn.

    Bees in America: How the Honey Bee Shaped a Nation by Tammy Horn (now Tammy Horn Potter). Tammy is the State Apiarist for Kentucky. I am about half-way through the book now and am really enjoying it. A very deep dive into America's history with the honey bee.

    Thank you. I am interested in finance.
    I read these books already and will check out your suggestions.

    Lauri, podcasts are good in camp or on road trips.
    Kiwimana and Pollination come to mind.
