The Cockroach Papers

By Richard Schweid

What a delightful little book! And it's not only because I'm biased towards the subject of the book. The book includes stories from the author's life and experiences as they pertain to roaches, as well as some scientific facts about the critters. They were mostly accurate, considering the time it was published (1999) and the knowledge acquired since. The chapter before last was a bit tiresome, but other than that it was such a flowing read. Highly recommended!

There's also a neat little flip book animation of the German cockroach courtship and mating ritual! Awesome!
