Nowadays, there are lots of books about bees available, including conservation books, identification guides, beekeeping books, books for children, gardening for bees, and bee-themed poetry books.
Highlighted below are several of my favourite bee books, but for further detail, see the links below where I have grouped books by type, such as wild bee ecology and identification books, books for children and beekeeping, available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
Also, if you scroll further down the page, you will see links to my book reviews (including Bees In Your Backyard, Bumblebees of North America, Field Guide to Bees of Britain and Ireland, and Meadowlands), as well as Q&As with authors (including John Lewis-Stempel, Henk Tennekes and Phil Chandler, Raymond Huber).
Here you will find links to various books available on Amazon by, including books I have reviewed in depth and interviews with authors.
This excellent book gives a very comprehensive overview of the bees of North America and Canada.
It's ideal for anyone who wishes to learn more about bees, their habitats, behaviours, and also provides some of the best guidance to help you identify the different species, that I have seen available.

Professor Goulson's book is a text book primarily for ecology students, but the summaries of scientific research presented are fairly easy to read. In my view, this is a book for at least the more serious enthusiast. Very informative book. See my in-depth review here.
