Reviews about A Field Guide to Household Bugs: It's a Jungle in Here (7):
ACOS
Funny but not very helpful. Would have been better if they would have shown the bugs as we see them as well as microscopically.

I wanted a guide to household bugs that would allow me to identify and combat them. Instead the book is full of electron-microscope photos of parts of bugs -- totally useless for my purpose. The text is sensationalistic and the descriptions are partial at best. It might be entertaining for children.
Grosho
Even though I consider myself a big fan of horror films, I was ill prepared for the emotional pounding delivered by "A Field Guide to Household Bugs". Give me Jason or Damien or Freddie, but dont tell me about the millions upon millions of uninvited guests that are feeding on me and my home. YIKES! I am being eaten alive! Literally.

The book is a riot. It is written in such a way that both children and adults alike will find the humor and the horror. The scanning electron micrographs are as brilliant as they are terror-inducing. Not for the timid. The writing is crisp and titillating. You will find your children gathered in a corner both clutching at the pages and wretching in disgust. I will never sleep on that old favorite pillow again.

Let us hope that authors elect not to write a sequel about the unwanted creatures of the car or office. Too ghastly. But compelling.

I purchased this book in the hopes that it would shed some light on the mysterious bugs I've seen in my home (no, I'm not a dirty person with a bug-filed home, but my house is very old with lots of nooks and crannies for bugs to come into the house!). Instead, this book is more of a book for families/kids. There are no actual photos of bugs or their larvae, just super-magnified images that won't really help with identification. The information is very generalized, and the authors try to be "jokey" in their descriptions as well as with their tips on how to get rid of bugs. I was also disappointed in how small the book is. I wish there had been a "look inside" option for this book before I purchased it. In all fairness, there were a few interesting tidbits in this book, but it was not what I was looking for.

Abarbanel and Swimmer hit it out of the park with their "A Field Guide to Household Bugs." They are the Lewis & Clark of the bedroom, stylishly educating us about such cohabitating beasties as cimex lectularius (bedbugs)and dermatophagoides pteronyssinus (dust mites). Alas, they force us, through magnificent electron microscope photography, to realize that we are not alone. Written with humor and style for the not-so-squeamish among us, this book awakens the senses (especially the sense of touch) and assures even the most solitary sleeper that there is actually quite a bit of activity in your bed every night. - B.

We're not so different after all. Thanks to the authors. I'd love to meet you two. You must be extremely funny in person, Linda Levine

I love this book's breezy, engaging and information-packed style. I learned a lot and laughed a lot. Highly recommended!
As a parent and sience educator, I am always looking for ways to integrate scientific knowledge and fun into my students' and kids' lives--this book does it! A witty, clever, and accurate portrayal of bugs surrounding us, even in the comforts of home.
Highly recommended--my second grader read chapters of it for her class reading and set about to put hair strengthener in her hair after learning that lice prefer thin hair!
