I loved this book! But then, I love living things, including bugs. The author covers a slew of nasty, hurtful and rarely helpful small, multi-legged creatures. She discusses more than just insects (of which “bug” is a particular type of insect), but also spiders and small crustaceans that have impacted mankind. If you are one who gets the heeby-geebies when reading, be careful of this book, and don’t read it at night.
