Of the three insect guides I own, I believe this one is the best. It has what I want; lots of insects, a good layout with clear pictures keyed to the page the text is on, more text on the insect than either of my other popular field guides on insects, and a very durable binding.

A weakness is the dependence on a single photo of each bug. Many bugs show a lot of variation between male and female and i am not runnung across any photos of the two appearances in this guide. But overall, I still believe this is a very good insect guide. ( )

They've packed quite a few in here, but I found it somewhat lacking on specifics for some types of wood boring insects. Considering the number of insects, they did quite a good job, though. Definitely a good reference to start with. ( )
