I reviewed another of Konstaninos's books, VAMPIRES: THE OCCULT TRUTH, a couple years ago and I just re-read it to see what I felt of that title against what I feel about WEREWOLVES.

The tone is the same, which I really liked. Konstantinos approaches the subject as a skeptic and isn't ashamed about it. He brushes aside the more frivolous, Hollywood aspects of werewolf lore and delves pretty deeply the hardcore legends from a bunch of different cultures, including European, Native American and som...more

It's a full moon and the night is crystal clear. You are alone out in the woods and your getting that funny feeling as though you are being watched.

Unlike a lot of people, I enjoyed the book on vampires that Konstantinos did. At the time, there was so little in mainstream literature that even touched on what the modern vampire community is. It was a bullet point-esque, layman's introduction to the sub-culture, sure, but it wasn't a misleading one. It was a book that could really open people's eyes to concepts they hadn't considered before. For those reasons I was highly anticipating this, the werewolf book.

For a serious look at the possibility that werewolves exist, I liked this one. The author throws in his own personaility into it, as well as some bits of sarcasm and humor. Lets face it, nonfiction books are not something alot of people can get into. This one made it kinda fun.
Good job!
Rambling, incoherent, inaccurate*, self-aggrandizing ("As in my other books...") and chatty like a bad blog. [*with regard to shamanic belief and practice in particular]
