Editorial Reviews


"Bless the Bees: The Pending Extinction of our Pollinators and What You Can Do to Stop It," written by Kenneth Eade, and illustrated by Valentina Eade, can be considered a manifesto for the survival of bees. The pressing issue of bees' extinction is something that should concern the entire population of planet Earth, given that each and every individual's life depends on the fate of our bees. Were it for pollination to disappear, a whole natural cycle would be broken, and thereby our lives would change dramatically.  Jo Ammons, New York Book Examiner.

"Bless the Bees" is a formidable resource for anyone who is concerned or wants to learn more about the unclear future of bees as a species. This book is informative, well written, well-researched, and highly resourceful. I applaud the author Kenneth Eade for compiling such an excellent reference for readers. - A.C. Haury, Bibliophile Book Reviews
 This beautifully illustrated book should be read by each and every individual living on this planet as the fate of our bee population is of global concern. Without pollination a whole natural cycle would be broken, thus strongly impacting our lives." - Top Books Worth Reading
"The book suggests ways of `fighting back', from buying organic, avoiding GMOs, to working against the powerful chemical lobby and supporting conservation. Getting even more personal, the book takes the resolution to the problem directly into our homes and lets us know what each of us can do to reverse this tragedy.  This is a very important book and one that belongs in the hands of everyone who cares about ecology and the preservation of the bee population that in turn means the preservation of life as we know it on this planet." Grady Harp

From the Author

Two years ago, my wife, Valentina Eade, and I were celebrating our second wedding anniversary in San Francisco, California.  At brunch, on the table, was an informative brochure, telling us about the bee epidemic and that the hotel was keeping hives on their rooftop to help ameliorate the situation.  I had thought that the bee crisis had long passed, and we were both very alarmed over it.  She is a professional photographer.  I am a writer.  So, we both decided to "shake things up" and generate awareness about what is probably the most important environmental and human issue of our lifetime.  She has been all over the world working on her project, and the photographs in this book are of just some of the "friends" we have meet along the way.  We hope you enjoy them and the book, and that it makes you feel as strongly about the subject as we do.

More About the Author

Author Kenneth Eade, best known for his legal and political thrillers, practiced law for 30 years before publishing his first novel, "An Involuntary Spy." Eade, an up and coming author in the legal thriller and courtroom drama genre, has been described by critics as "Brilliant when it comes to creating complicated, intriguing stories that end in mind-blowing surprises, who have said that his novels will remind readers of John Grisham, proving that Kenneth Eade deserves to be on the same lists with the world's greatest thriller authors."

Says Eade of the comparisons, "Readers compare me in style to John Grisham and, although there are some similarities, because John also likes to craft a story around real topics and we are both lawyers, all of my novels are rooted in reality, not fantasy. I use fictional characters and situations to express factual and conceptual issues. Some use the term 'faction' to describe this style, and it is present in all my fictional works."

Eade has written seven novels, which are now in the process of being translated into ten languages. He is known to keep in touch with his readers, offering a free books and discounts to all those who sign up at his web site,

Bless the Bees is a condensed study with valuable support links – to aid you in your own research; which examines the decline of the ‘pollinator population’ worldwide.

While this book focuses on the Bee population, it touches on all pollinators and the extinction dangers they face due to [what is largely still being denied by world leaders] the introduction of harmful chemicals produced by the giant Monsanto and others to ‘supposedly’ protect crops [which in my mind is a questionable motive].

The problem with Big Business – is that it’s BIG, and it carries a lot of clout. Money talks! Like most other man-made problems affecting planet Earth and the life on it – we tend not to go into corrective mode until the problem we caused swims up and bites us in the 'arse'!

This is exactly what’s happening now. And unless we do something about – unless we take to heart books like Bless the Bees – we are doomed to suffer the consequences of our actions.

Bless the Bees is a heads-up book for the discerning - detailing the problem, pointing out what must be done to fix the problem; but we have to listen and then ACT!

Together we can make a difference - but our leaders must stop hiding behind 'the almighty dollar'; they must stop protecting 'big corporations' and under-the-table-deals that line their pockets and bank accounts with 'blood-money' and do what is BEST for our planet - our home! Earth is our home - and we're killing her and everything on her - and the indicator that our demise has already begun is evident in the decline of our pollinators like our Bees!

I like this book – it’s condensed, and quickly and easily identifies the problem areas and points out what must be done if we are to be saved.

Read the book. Take it to heart. Then ACT!

Author Kenneth Eade and his wife, photographer Valentina Eade have created a beautiful art book about the bounty of bees and their importance to the existence of the world as we know it. So serious is the progress of our extinction of bees that biologists are calling what we are doing a mass extinction that ranks with the mammoth events of our planets history from the dinosaurs to now.
Few of us may appreciate the gravity of the problem of the use of pesticides on the bee population, and why the existence of bees is necessary for the natural life cycle of our food supply. Pollination of fruit and vegetable blossoms by bees is essential for the creation mature fruits and vegetables, but as we fumigate the air to control pests we believe are endangering our crops, we are simultaneously killing off the honey bees and the pollinating armies of bees so important to our food chain. As the author states, `Since 1972, feral honey bees in the United States have declined 80% to near extinction, and domestic bees in the United States are down to 60%. Since 2006, the epidemic has been referred to as colony collapse disorder, describing the disappearance of entire colonies of bees.'

The book provides documented facts of how we are destroying the bee population, facts that are serious enough to demand world attention. And in order to make this information more potent the book goes through the types of bees and the functions each provides and these chapters are filled with magnificently beautiful photographs of honey bees, bumble bees, bees on flowers, in tandem with bats, birds and other pollinators (there is a fine art photograph of a humming bird in a bed of blue agapanthus that serves framing!

The Eades have authored a compelling narrative about these vital creatures and their imminent extinction.. and as a result, ours.

This book is not just another example of another global systemic failure whose origins are too murky or unfathomable to be addressed in any effective way. The origins of the bee population decimation are revealed, and perhaps more importantly, the book shares effective steps any reader can take to begin stemming this heinous attack on humanity's food chain.

As a bonus, the photography presents a poignant series of portraits of these amazing friends.

This book is filled with information regarding Bees. I never realized how important the roll of bees in nature really is! "Bless the Bees"educates the reader on the different types of Bees and also about the other pollinators. Reading Mr. Eade's book makes me realize that we'd better become aware to the dangers we are facing and act soon to save our bees before it is too late.

I found out about Bless the Bees from a person on the street who was part of an ecological impact awareness organization. He told me that to get a better understanding of the environmental issue I should read this. I'm very glad I did because now I am aware of the personal decisions and changes I can make to improve what's going on.

Average people need to learn about these issues and simply have the desire to protect our planet. Bless the Bees read very forthright and honest. It didn't sugarcoat, but stayed very close to reality. The author, Kenneth Eade, is clearly very knowledge and has expertise on the topic. His prose was pleasant, despite the heavy content of the bee crisis.

I am really glad I took the time to read Bless the Bees and learn about the topic. I think Bless the Bees gave me a healthy and all-encompassing understanding that I can put to good use.
