    This classic book is natural history at its best. The world of insects is Howard Evans' "little-known planet," the realm of the cockroach and the cricket, the wasp and the bedbug. With the precision and authority of a distinguished biologist, and the wit and grace of an accomplished writer, Howard Evans muses on the uniqueness of dragonflies, the romantic impulses of butterflies, the musicianship of crickets, and the mysteries of the firefly.

    "Outdated"
    Overall

    This is one book that would have been improved if it was in an abridged format. The way studies were quoted gave the book the mood of reading a Master's Thesis rather than an entertaining science piece. Also, the content of the book is outdated, being published in 1968. An epilogue published in 1993 did not make up for having to wade through outdated material.
