    This is a great book! One that I definitely want to add to my personal reference collection after I'm forced to return this copy to the county library.

    It's divided into five major chapters: Sexual Behaviour, Egg-laying Behaviour, Parental Care, Feeding Behaviour, and Defensive Behaviour. Within each chapter are subsections, often divided by family.

    This book is full of wonderful pictures, too, most in color.

    I finished reading it last night and feel like I need to read it again already. There's a lot of information packed into 313 pages and I think it would be a valuable reference tool.

    Warning: the language is a bit on the dry side. Only a fun read if you're an invertebrate nut who finds long descriptions of obligate social behavior in spiders to be utterly fascinating.
