Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I carry this little guy (and a few of its Golden Guide brethren) on me while I'm in the field at work. It does not weigh me and provides enough information so I always know what I'm looking at. The images are excellent as well. In many other books, I find it hard to view insects when they are photographed in their natural habitat. I understand that it is important to know about their habitat, but it is no good if you spend more time looking for the insect than reading on it. The pictures in this guide are all drawn, which allows for optimal viewing of the insect.
Fifty plus years ago I used my allowance to buy the "Golden Nature Guides" on a variety of subjects (birds, reptiles and amphibians, etc). At the time they were my "wikipedia" to nature as an 8-12 year old.
The newest editions while no longer $0.25 are very similar to the old ones and just as valuable to the novice of 8 or 80.
Best of all one can flip through them in an hour or so and then consult them when that dekay snake, wolf spider, wood thrush or fossil containing sediment comes into view. From these guides a lifelong interest in looking closely at everything may arise. While the era of Heathkits is gone for our children and grandchildren this series may still help in creating a scientist, professional or otherwise.
A great first book to familiarize oneself with common insects and characteristics of insect orders. Wore out a copy as a child, another as an adult. Have bought copies for my children, grandson, and numerous budding young insect enthusiasts.
