The Sunday Book Review: Bugged

The subtitle of this amusing book is "The Insects Who Rule the World and the People Obsessed with Them." And that's what it's about, disappointingly: the clever and nerdy entomologists that people like to make fun of because they're "different" from the rest of us.

There are a few facts about how bugs live and work, their contributions to the ecosystem, and so on, but I finally put the book in my "Return to Library" bag because I was sick of the cute little stories about the bugologists in their labs, the autopsy people in their mortuaries, the silk-worm people in their silk-worm places, and so on.

But if you have a lot of time on your hands, and you enjoy reading about interesting and unusual people, and you're not squeamish, you'll enjoy the book.
