"Spider Behaviour: Flexibility and Versatility presents an excellent summary of the state of behavioural research on spiders that a broad range of readers will find stimulating. Herberstein deserves congratulations for conceiving of and editing such a fine book."
Linda S. Rayor, Animal Behaviour
"This volume boasts a dream team of authors, including rising stars and field luminaries, each summarizing their respective fields. The book emphasizes the flexibility, versatility, and sheer diversity of spider behavior. Generally, it takes on the daunting task of summarizing all of spider behavior with remarkable finesse. One of the volume's most impressive feats is its attention to the recent literature in rapidly moving subfields. Doubtlessly the text is destined to serve a valuable reference for both arachnologists and behaviorists. Personally, I know I will be assigning this volume to both undergraduate and graduate students for years to come. I suspect so will many others."
Jonathan N. Pruitt, The Quarterly Review of Biology
"... well written and very well edited ... I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book, and recommend it for anyone wishing to gain a good understanding of spiders in general, and their behaviours in particular."
B. Staffan Lindgren, Bulletin of the Entomological Society of Canada
