Slaves? Spies? War across continents? Everything you didn't know about the world's most successful superorganisms.

Normally, I don’t care too much for personal anecdotes in science literature. However, Moffett’s descriptions of his travels and experiences with both humans and animals, and their environments, add layers to the narrative which make for a very interesting read. I definitely learned new things about the ant world and truly enjoyed the pictures in this book.

Extremely interesting. I had no idea that ants are such amazing creatures. I now watch them with a whole new perspective, even though I studied them closely as a small child in my back yard.
