This is a brilliant book It helps me to identify Spiders that a lot of people can t I had someone at work point out a little green spider no bigger than a pin head, thanks to this book I knew it was a Huntsmen Spider Now I can go around my garden and identify Spiders next summer using this book I keep Tantulas so why not learn about all Spiders Comes in handy when people panic because they think they have seen a false widow spider Lol The best field guide available for Britain s Spider The photos inside are amazing The guide is a good size but there are a lot of pages so a fairly heavy book It would easily fit a rucksack I love to sit at home and flick through the wonderful photos of the Spiders. This is a brilliant book, in my opinion A different structure to the old fashioned identification guides, aimed at identifying spiders without removing them from their habitat Also, it s wonderful to be able to download it I have both hardcopy and soft, but I think the versions on my phone and tablet will be the most used. Having been a life long arachnophobe, I decided it was time to know about them This is a well researched book, covering the spider species of Britain Although well illustrated, it s not easy to identify some species from the pictures I would also have liked a bit insight into their lifestyles Otherwise, a very good book as an introduction to the subject. I love it This is a great book for anyone interested in learning how to identify and increase their knowledge of our country s spiders It starts with the descriptions of key families and habitats, then moves on to the photographic images of most species This is a fairly thick book with around 480 pages It is a paperback though the cover is thick enough to offer good protection for pages within I do plan to purchase other books in this series. I am a complete novice to knowing about spiders in and around Britain , but this book I have to say is fantastic, I bet even someone who knows a thing or two about these little scurrying things would enjoy it.I have found a whole new interest in these creatures which I feel has taken away that slight feeling of uneasiness of seeing a spider out of the corner of your eye, to interest what they are all about and this book certainly as a novice lets you know what you need to know.I like it so much I will be buying a few of the other books in the Wild Guides series already purchased Britain s Butterflies from Wordery , it was cheaperAlthough these books can be pricey they are worth it, and you can if you look around buy them cheaper.
