Insects have been shaping our ecological world and plant life for over 400 million years. In fact, our world is essentially run by bugs -- there are 1.4 billion for every human on the planet. In Bugged, journalist David MacNeal takes us on an offbeat scientific journey that weaves together history, travel, and culture to explore our relationship with these mini-monsters.

A really interesting books about bugs in all aspects. You learn about ant colonies and how they are organised, bees and their hives, why beetles are popular in Japan as pets, how to eat bugs, and other topics. It's quite fun to read, so it's perfect for your armchair scientist.
