Paulson has done an excellent job with both his eastern and western versions of his reference to dragonflies and damselflies. Organization, illustrations, and cross-referencing is very good.

Both books have an introductory part, explaining overall basics of these insects. Both also have a general natural history section.

After these sections, the references go through each species with text, range maps, flight season, good diagnostic photos, and more. The index is also very good.

I gave my versions slightly less than a 5-star rating only because of the book binding. These are large heavy texts and would have been better produced in a standard hardback construction than the paperback versions I was able to find when I purchased them.

Both the eastern and western references are very well worth having regardless of binding.
