I found this book to be enjoyable reading for those, who want to get the crap scared out of them by insects.
Like the insects themselves the book's information is presented in short segments, making it very easy to find stopping points for those who like to read in spurts.
For anyone who is curious about their surroundings, or is interested in nature or animals we share our lives with, this is a must read!
