The Bad Beekeepers Club Summary


The Bad Beekeepers Club: How I stumbled into the Curious World of Bees - and became (perhaps) a Better Person by Bill Turnbull

'Hello. My name is Bill and I'm a bad beekeeper. A really bad beekeeper.' So begins Bill Turnbull's charming account of how he stumbled into the mysterious world of beekeeping (sometimes literally). Despite many setbacks - including being stung in the head (twice) on his first day of training - beekeeping somehow taught Bill a great deal about himself and the world around him. Bill chronicles his mishaps - and brief triumphs - with the humour and Zen-like acceptance of a man who knows his enthusiasm will always outweigh his abilities. At the same time his stories highlight the very real threats to our bee population, and what we can do to create a better environment for these vital and rather wonderful creatures. Fascinating and hugely engaging, The Bad Beekeepers Club is a universally appealing story about a very singular passion.
