Book and cover both fantastic!

My review of Nick Haddad’s excellent book was published recently in Oryx.  If you want to read the review, follow this link.  If you don’t, then all you need to know is that my responses to the following questions were all very positive 🙂

  1. Would I buy it?
  2. Would I recommend a colleague to buy it?
  3. Would I recommend it to students as worth buying?
  4. Would I ask the library to buy it?
  5. Would I recommend it to anyone else?

    Sounds like a book worth buying – especially when current restrictions on movement mean that time spent out in the field will be severely reduced so there will be more opportunity for reading!
    I was interested by the comment about the potentially beneficial impacts of artillery fire on a shooting range. Dave Goulson in his (also excellent) book Bee Quest describes another unintended benefit of military training on Salisbury Plain where the rare Fairy Shrimp Chirocephalus diaphanus seems to thrive in temporary pools created in the ruts left by tanks.
