"Not only is this book a great step forward in the knowledge of Australian dragonflies, it will cause a giant leap forward in such knowledge when more naturalists start to bring in observatons of the country's wonderful dragonflies."--Sidney W. Dunkle, author of Dragonflies Through Binoculars.
"This photographic guide covers the 324 species of damselflies and dragonflies of Australia. Each species is given a color photograph, text, a color range map and usually line drawings. Anyone interested in Australian damselflies and dragonflies will like this book."-- (09/01/2009)
"This book will appeal to everyone, from beginners to students and researchers, and should become the first reference book that anyone interested in Australian Odonata will consult."--Richard Marchant"The Victorian Naturalist" (06/01/2007)
"This wonderful field guide can be wholeheartedly recommended to all who are interested in the biodiversity of Australia and/or of the order Odonata. The book is of equal usefulness for laymen as well as for entomologists. The price is absolutely adequate, especially considering the outstanding quantity."-- (03/01/2007)
"The guide is a profusely illustrated visual feast. Highly recommended - at 376 pages, you get your money's worth, yet it remains portable for the field."-- (01/01/2007)
"It is an excellent tome and I have no doubt that it will be the 'Bible' of Australian Dragonflies for many years to come."--Stephen Richards, South Australian Museum, Vertebrates Department
