About the Author

Jeffrey Lockwood is a Professor of Natural Sciences & Humanities at the University of Wyoming and author of Six-Legged Soldiers (OUP; April 2010)


This provocative book is valuable for psychologists, entomologists, or general readers who would like to understand how irrational fears of insects and their relatives distort people's view of reality. Highly recommended. * E. R. Lee Jr., Choice, *
If someone is interested in a solid and interdisciplinary background about the mechanisms and manifestations of entomophobia as well as techniques to overcome this fear, this book provides a good foundation. * Rick Vetter, American Entomologist *
