"The storytelling is exemplary. . . . Torre takes you from Ed Wood to Pok mon, from surrealistic art to synergistic relationships between bats and plants, all without missing a beat. This is one of those books that takes an already fascinating topic--animal-eating plants--and makes it even more exciting, more weird, and endlessly fascinating."--Tim Entwhistle, director and CEO, Royal Botanic Gardens, Victoria, Australia "Carnivorous Plants is one of the few books that provides sound information and interweaves various fields of knowledge that would not normally come together creating a body of work that is comprehensive. The style is easily accessible and ultimately readable and entertaining."--Randall W. Robinson, Victoria University Melbourne
