Facts?

This book contains at least one fact that I'm pretty sure is false. Dragonflies do not live only one day! After Googling, that fact appears to be a somewhat common misconception. Makes me wonder about the quality of the other facts. Reading reviews of some of this author's other books show people have spotted other inaccuracies.

In addition, too much of this book was about other arthropods. I just finished listening to 101 Facts About Spiders and Other Arachnids and at least two of the chapters in this book were the same or very similar.
