By James C. Harrison - Published on Amazon.com
I didn't buy this book from Amazon. In fact I read it first long before there was an Amazon. I wrote a brief review of the book for a small magazine many years ago, calling it "Oldroyd's splendid book." One of my friends happened to see the review and gave me some grief for praising a book about flies so highly. But it really is a splendid book. Five decades of research have made it badly out of date; but it remains, along with Froelix's Biology of Spiders, a model of scientific writing, accessible to the general reader but not embarrassing to the scientist.
