2.0 out of 5 stars Ok bok but not a fieldguide
I bought this book to bring it with me on my holiday, so I can get pointers of what species I might find. However this book was not exactly what I was hoping it to be, I think I will leave it home. Bad photos take it down a notch, and I get the feeling that it only presents a very limited picture of the whole variation of insects.

This review is from: Fascinating Insects of Southeast Asia (Paperback)
Married to a SE Asian, I'm a biologist inclined towards entomology so may be considered a miserable old git. However, I often buy insect books on tropical insects to further my knowledge. Obviously anyone who expects a slim volume like this to cover even a fraction of the ground that the (now ancient) volumes of A.Seitz did for the Lepidoptera (butterfles and moths) is naive. Showing genuine examples of the major groups is fraught with danger as these may well not be typical of that group as a whole, while (as here) simply delving as deep as a family or genus does little to enlighten the reader bewildered by the (bewildering) variety of insects on the planet, especially in tropical regions. The information given would make a good general lecture series on insects as a whole. As to the illustrations, there are far too many flash photos (I could forgive those taken in the depths of a rainforest) and some of the insects look as though they had been staged, as was the tendency in the insect books of the 1950s: this may be an illusion, I admit. Overall, as an "old hand", I was disappointed in this book.

Very interesting book we have a whole libary of animal and insect books from all over the world and this one adds to that library and is a great asset on this subject matter
