I highly recommend the book and more to the point, I recommend that everyone encourage bats to do their thing. Your life will be so much more comfortable in the evenings - they really do take a bite out of the bug problems. Sorry, I could not resist the pun. Get the book, attract bats to your neighborhood, and sit back and enjoy the show. Or not, but check out the book, the stuff we all grew up "knowing" about bats has very little to do with real bats. I figure these are furry mamals that are more closely akin to us than birds and bees, so why not learn more about them. The book shows that there are bats that do the things that birds and bees do - polination, etc...they are really amazing.
