The book that started it all for me. This book may be a bit outdated on some of the species level taxonomy, but that's not the jewel of this book. This book got my young mind to think like a scientist. Spider morphology and anatomy are all here. How the ocular areas are grouped to guide identification is here. More than that, the book teaches you how to understand different position oriented words that are often used in specifying the location of different characteristics such as lateral, median, ventral, dorsal, etc.

This book is my stepping stone into science and biology and will forever remain on my shelf. In fact, I'm buying a hardcover version for my now young son. I'm hoping he'll cherish it the way I did.

I owe BJ Kaston a big thank you!

This book is not for beginners. It is a manual that gives in detail the anatomical differences among various spiders, which makes it suitable for someone studying spiders in depth. There are many diagrams of various spider parts. A person using this book would need a suitable source of magnification to be able to observe the tiny details on a particular spider. Overall, it is a book suitable for college or post graduate level information.

The book is OK, but it is not a great help in identifying specific species. Helps narrow finds down to families, but further help will be needed.

Book is more on a textbook level than for average identification of garden spiders on the move. B & W illustrations of tiny body parts that would not be easily visible on spiders still in nature. Good for science. Not great for someone wanting to do identification on spiders in the wild.

As a biologist it has not only been a huge refresher and has given me new knowledge. The book is in excellent condition.
Many books written on arachnids are basically recycled jargon boring the reader with misinformation and "common sense" wife's tales. This book, however, was an exception to the rule. The author seems to actually know the subject matter, getting past the "basics" very quickly and introducing you to virtually every family of spider and all of their distinguishing features. Also included are several odd footnotes about the arachnid that I found very useful and that I hadn't seen elsewhere.
The books includes areas on:
1) where to find spiders
2) how you should go about collecting and preserving them
3) parasites and other enemies the spider has
4) the anatomy of the arachnid and how to recognize their sex
5) some useful information about the wondrous effects of spider venom
6) a guide on how to actually study spiders
7) the lists of families and higher categories of all spiders (including pictures of the families that are commonly found)
I personally found it to be an interesting read and would say that anyone interested in Entomology or simply looking into spiders should give it peek. You might thank yourself one day.
