Media reviews

"This is the definitive, must-have guide to the dragonflies of Britain and Ireland [...] the most comprehensive field guide of its type [...] Highly recommended."
– Mark Tyrrell, Dragonfly News

"[The] information is well presented and a subject that could easily daunt a budding odonatologist is in fact made entirely digestible. If you haven't already got a copy, it's well worth investing."
