Although this is a fairly technical college text I recommend it to everyone with more than a passing interest in entomology.
The author goes into great detail into the subject and yet with a little work anyone should be able to make it through this text.
Do not be intimidated by the jargon as one will eventaully become familair with it.The illustrations are very helpful.
Aquatic and juvenile insects are not neglected here as they are so often in other texts.
So many children have a passing interest in entomology. Speaking from personal experience as a child for a long time after memorizing one of the Zim guides from cover to cover I thought I knew all that needed to be known about insects. A parent aware of one's child's intellectual development should know when it is time to give their kids more advanced books. There are certainly books that bridge the gap between the Zim guides ad this boo k (The Peterson Field Guide to Insects for example)and although I certainly do not recommend this book for a child the ambitious young adult should be able to get a lot out of this book.

This book also discusses the many uses for entomology, beyond that of identification of insects. It shows you the applications of the knowledge you are gaining, and that is very important I think.
This book and a field guide is all you need to really get a working understanding of entomology and its uses as a science. This book gives you the theory behind the insects and why they are the way they are and is an excellent purchase even for me, the hobbyist.
