If you like your non-fiction niche but comprehensive, I’ve got the book for you!
Text Publishing was kind enough to send me a copy of their new release The Mosquito, by Timothy C. Winegard, for review. I wish they’d sent a reminder to warn everyone in my life that they were about to get hit with a barrage of mosquito-related fun facts.
Only female mosquitos bite. Of the 108 billion people who have ever lived on this planet, mosquitoes (or, more accurately, the viruses and parasites they carry) have killed nearly half—52 billion. Do you know how elephants defend themselves against the mosquito’s bite? You’ll find the answer in Chapter 1, and it will surprise you.
The Mosquito is a deep, deep dive into the incredible impact one little insect can have over the course of human history.
