This is probably the best butterfly book of them all: sumptuous, readable and marvellously complete. . . I don't want to overpraise it, but it's perfect, sometimes anecdotal, and packed with the right information. --Simon Barnes, The Times
For me, this is still the best butterfly book ever written and a `must have' for every serious butterfly enthusiast. --Martin Warren, Chief Executive, Butterfly Conservation
Britain's best-loved butterfly book -- Michael McCarthy, The Independent
. . what promises to be our best butterfly book for 20 years, by our top expert Professor Jeremy Thomas and acclaimed butterfly artist, Richard Lewington --Peter Marren, The Weekend Telegraph
There are many books on British butterflies, but this is the ultimate butterfly handbook, with all the detail one could possibly want. . . . Richard Lewington's illustrations are absolutely astounding. How can anyone paint so well?
--Steve Gantlett, Birding World
