I sat in a bookstore for three hours just reading pages from each section. Well laid out, well (duh!) researched. Astounding. It is verging on the edge of crazy to want to buy this tome seeing as how I am not in the field of cultural entomolgy, but I feel that I must own this book, just for the sheer volume of information it contains on those tiny ants. I never contemplated that this much dedication and care would be taken to understand them. Very cool.
