"Yet again I was screaming in the night" is the opening sentence in this book. The author decided to deliberately overcome her fear of spiders by observing and studying them, and learning as much as she could about them. As well as being an authoritative book on spiders this book is a personal account of how the author came to love them; and how any other arachnophobe can do the same."--provided by publisher.
