Review: To Know A FlyUser Review - Kimbolimbo - Goodreads
I read this while working in a spider collection in Seattle. The curator had a collection of really old books and the title of this caught my eye. It was a GREAT book to read. The experiments are barbaric but fascinating. Read full review
Review: To Know A FlyUser Review - Goodreads
I've read this book before, and I even did some of the experiments that were described inside. Hard to believe that an entomology book could be laugh-out-loud funny. I recommend it highly to anyone. It's a short read. Very short. Try it. You just might like it.
