Amazon.com Review

It's hard to imagine life without a good field guide to slugs, but Gordon, thank god, wrote a doozy of one. In a mere 48 pages, Gordon covers slug anatomy, the slug family tree, the eating habits of slugs, slugs in your garden, slugs in the wild and slugs at home. Lucid and interesting, this is the slug guide to beat all others.

This is a great short non-fiction work on slugs, handy for identifying those little slimers. Just the right amount of detail for the mildly curious. Readable in about an hour, it includes brief chapters on "The Slug Family Tree," "The Slug in Brief," "Anatomy of a Slug," "Familiar Slugs of the Northwest," "Seven Wonders of Slugdom," "Controlling Slugs," "Observing Slugs in the Wild," and "at Home", "Plants Slugs Avoid Eating" and "Love to Eat", and a short bibliography

This is a neat little package that gives a wealth of info about slugs. It was a little less technical than I had hoped. If you're looking to answer specific biology questions or have the hopes of a key, this is not the answer.

I found this book to be a concise, thorough discussion of the subject of garden slugs. Every gardener has had to deal with them in some form or another and this little book is the perfect addition to your gardening library on the subject. Excellent artwork and drawings, also.

I'd hoped for a more formal field guide with color plates showing species and variations, and a bit more technical information. Oh well, this was a lively, entertaining and interesting little volume and I certainly learned a lot I didn't know about our slimy Northwest fauna. It seems that there is a paucity of information about slugs. And who'd pay for a fancy, color-plated field guide anyhow? If you'd like to know more about slugs in the Northwest, this is as good as it gets. Buy it!

Any gardener with slugs within their gareden will
treasure this book. It's a mini 101 course that will
enlighten you about their behaviors and how to erradicate
them. An added bonus is a beautifully "illustrated
cover", worthy to sit on any coffee table.
