The Complete Insect: Anatomy, Physiology, Evolution, and Ecology. Princeton, 2023


«This reviewer repeatedly found himself stuck on a page marveling at the hours and hours of work that had gone into the research and photography behind the detail. Like a good exhibit designer, Grimaldi does not titillate or terrify with close-ups of the monsters that typically haunt other ‘bug’ books. Rather, he draws readers into a world populated by wonderful, colorful insects, creating an appreciation for entomology.»—G.C. Stevens, Choice
