Abstractbefore the completion of the book and did not have an opportunity to see the end product. This book is much needed to educate biologists about the fascinating biology and diversity of cockroaches. It is perhaps a little too technical for the general public, but anyone with a background in science is likely to comprehend most of the information here. My one criticism is that a number of recent and relevant references have been left out. Beyond that I think this book should be read by anyone interested in cockroach diversity and evolution. I especially recommend this book to graduate students so they can perhaps realize the myriad opportunities and unanswered questions that exist in the study of cockroach biology and evolution.
