Feedback from readers:

    "Congratulation on the quality of your new book. It is just what is needed and I can't wait until next year to use it!" [from MJ]
    "The book is quite superb in every way. The lay-out is 'customer-friendly' thoughtful and easy to use ... the photographs are all excellent, colour reproduction is perfect to my eyes and of course the 'line' guides, taken together with the confusion species, make the book required reading for moth-ers of any experience. Absolutely delightful and informative." [from AW]
    "Fantastic value for £10." [from TN]
