Reviews of Common Dragonflies of California:

"Common Dragonflies of California is great! It fills the niche in California Wildlife field-guides that was begging to be occupied! The color balance is dead-on reality. With its petite dimensions and light weight, it should ride in the pocket or backpack of every naturalist, hiker and biker in the state from May through September." - Rich Stallcup, PRBO CA, author Pelagic Birds of Monterey Bay

"Common Dragonflies of California is an uncommon book. Full of sound advice and chock full of excellent color photos, this book will be of great interest to any California nature lover. I am the kind of person who loves to know the name of every tree, shrub, flower, reptile, bird and fish that I see. Now that I have this little jewel, I'm going to learn how to identify the dragonflies too. The more we learn about nature, the more enjoyment we get from it. I highly recommend this fine book! I expect it would make a great present too, for the right person." - Tom Ogren, author of Allergy-Free Gardening

"...beautifully laid out, concise, informative, and the photographs are wonderful. It's altogether a little jewel, and lends veracity to the old saying, 'good things come in small packages'." Ty Brown, Salazar Library, Sonoma State University

Common Dragonflies of California, is a welcome and much-needed reference. The photos and descriptions are great and the website adds to the usefulness and is sure to increase our knowledge of the statewide distribution of species. I have been saying for years that this field guide was needed. Gary Santolo, Environmental Scientist

....a nice little pocket-sized guide....photographs are clear....I certainly recommend this publication to anyone interested in Odonata, and at $10.00, it's a bargain. Mark O'Brien, Williamsonia, Michigan Odonata Survey, Vol. 4, No. 3, Summer, 2000

The text is concise and very much to the point, the photographs and diagrams are excellent, ... a wonderful job on the layout." - John Smail, UC Office of the President

"A delightfully complete compact distillation of dragonfly data!" - Jeffrey A. Caldwell, California Garden Habitat Network
