Read in September, 2011

A fun little jaunt through various deadly and interesting bugs. Short tales of their destruction accompany each bug.

I liked it but felt it lacked some of the bug-y insight I was hoping for, but this is because it's written by a non-scientist for a non-scientist audience. I'm used to these kinds of books having a deeper understanding presented along with the crazy fact that helps me rethink misconceptions I may have had before reading. This didn't provide that, but was more or a survey.
