WICKED BUGS by Amy Stewart. Maybe you won't love them any more, but at least you'll understand them better, even as you try to crush them under foot. Many odd and fascinating anecdotes involving insects throughout history are related here, along with the dangers they pose and the diseases they carry. There's really no escape from them, so you might as well learn what you can while facing your worst nightmares. Coleen Marlo narrates this story of survival involving species which owned the world long before we came along, and will continue to own it long after we're gone.
