I have borrowed this book from a friend locally who is interested in beekeeping. I lent him my copy of Beekeeping for Dummies, which my wife bought as a joke for me. The joke is on her though because I've read it through twice so far.

Honeybee Democracy, is just as good. The author T.D. Steely takes a scientific approach to study how and why swarms choose new homes. Highly recommend picking this one up.

I originally picked up the book because I thought the quality of the book itself was good, cover art was good, and so therefore the content must be good right?   I mean, how can an entire book about swarming not keep you on the edge of your seat?    Actually, the book is really fascinating and while obviously very much a book about the science and research results it is written and presented in a highly consumable way without ever getting too bogged down.    Highly recommended.
