Basically tidbits of trivia. Cool art oriented. I actually bought it for almost $9 instead of the almost $30 at Strand in NYC. I'd say for the price I payed was worth it.

This book was really interesting. I wanted to learn background information about Kaiju and it was a good resource. I'll be definitely re-reading it in the future and using it as a reference book for the role of Kaiju in Japenese popular culture.

While there's not a lot of focus or depth here, its a good reference and honestly the Kaiju cross sections are beautiful, worth it for those alone.

Mostly value-added imagery; very little text.
