As Richardson entertainingly reveals, bats can see amazingly well in the dark, under no circumstances will they fly into a person's hair, and only three tropical species drink blood. In this informative book, he intersperses many colorful firsthand accounts of studying bats in the field and explains how to build bat-friendly environments. 105 photos, 100 in color.
