    Barth, F. G. 2002. A Spider's World: Senses and Behavior. Springer-Verlag, Berlin.
    ISBN 3540420460 (hardcover)

    Title of Original German Edition

    Sinne und Verhalten: aus dem Leben einer Spinne
    ISBN 3-540-67716-X

    I believe I enjoyed this text more than any other book pertaining to spiders. For anyone unaware, the genus Cupiennius is one of the most (if not the most) well studied genera of spiders.

    While the focus is on Cupiennius, anyone interested in arthropod sensory systems and behavior will love this text.

    Every serious student of spiders should have a copy on their bookshelf. Technical and informative. Expensive, but well worth the price. Buy it while it's still available.

    My copy just arrived today. I have read a few pages and flipped through the rest. Looks to be an amazing book well worth every penny.
