In May, Princeton University Press published Armin Schieb's book in English for the first time, delighting experts and book critics in the US:

»This remarkable scientific study ... features captivating drawings.« - Ron Charles, Washington Post

»Beautifully illustrated and easy-to-read.« - Marc Bekoff, Psychology Today

»Armin Schieb provides us with a detailed examination of the workings of an ant colony, supported by a gallery of computer-generated images that are breathtaking. You will see the intricacies of life in ant society in ways you have never seen before.« - David Gascoigne, Travels with Birds

»There has never been an ant book anything like The Ant Collective. Schieb’s illustrations use 3-D enhancement rendering technology in order to bring the ants into incredibly sharp focus, from the tips of their pretarsus to the slope of their tergite. Schieb doesn’t merely tell the reader where ants are going ... he shows it all in such incredible detail that no review reproduction can do justice to the results.« - Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Monthly
