After crusing the Amazon listing, I see all the books about fly traps are for kids! nothing serious and scientific.

There are maybe 2 only books about CP's in general which look like possible candidates.

Can anyone recommend a good book for fly traps in particular?
The more scientific and detailed the better :)

P.S. Something recent, not writen 100 years ago by a Darwin compatriate ;)

The Savage Garden by Peter D'Amato (Owner of California Carnivores) is a great book that covers everything! You can get it on Amazon for about 15 dollars, and it's a great buy! I know there are others, but I've never been as interested in them because they are all 40+ dollars.
