  • The text, the photographs, what's not to enjoy about The Smaller Majority. That is unless you don't like all things small (frogs, lizards, insects). The Smaller Majority tells the backgrounds of small things, most people overlook in their days. Although, insects etc. are small, their population makes up the majority of living things on earth. Did you know that a swarm of locusts can consist of more locusts than there are people in the world?Piotr Naskrecki tells how he fell in love with all thin [...]


  • Great photography of often overlooked, sometimes feared & despised critters. The verbal material that accompanies the photos is informative, accurate and not overly technical. This would be a great book for a high school or college level zoology student, to complement and add interest to the material covered in the more technical (and boring) official class textbook.

  • I got this because of the pictures. Pictures were good. Read a little, but mostly didn't bother.I'm beginning to be totally fascinated by creepy-crawlies, who have these complex behaviors and interactions that so few people care to examine


  • A wonderful coffee-table book featuring wonderful macro photography. As a macro photographer myself, it was especially interesting to learn of the ingenious equipment he uses to capture these extraordinary images. A big inspiration on the whole, well worth getting!



  • A wonderful book full of great photos and great information. A must read for anyone interested in the smaller creatures that occupy this world with us


  • If you want to be inspired by the weirdness of little bizarre and awesome creatures, this is the book to get. From insects to lizards to i don't know what, the photography is simply stunning.
