MEDIA REVIEWS
[Craig] gives a fascinating and vivid account of evolution of spider silks ... The book is a well-written, informative spider silk monograph ... will stimulate further research efforts in artificial silk synthesis ... will serve as an important source of information on all aspects of spider silk proteins. * Heredity *
Craigs 'Spider Webs and Silks' brings a fascinating and important subject to a potentially broad audience. And it might even turn some arachnophobes into arachnophiles. * Nature *
