I purchased this book recently. It covers a very broad spectrum. I would say that is is good for people that are trying to learn about many differant kinds of insects, but not one particular one. Good for beginners like me..

Excellent!
I just received my copy, and it is excellent in terms of its coverage of diversity, graphic design, and of course, content--written by entomologist (and BugGuide contributor) Arthur Evans. The print is a bit small for my middle-aged eyes, but that is to be expected in a book of such scope in this format.

NWF Field Guide
Just received my copy. Outstanding photos+glossary+ pronunciation guide.
