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

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. Suddenly a loud howl reverberates through the cloudless night. You see a huge lupine shape darting here and there. You think to yourself is this a real lfe werewolf? Time to get out the silver bullets oops but you do not even have a gun. You are convinced you are about to enter the realm of the dead. Of course if you survive this encounter with only ...more

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.

This book is NOTHING like the vamp

I found this book in the paranormal section of the giant book sale near my home. It was a somewhat unusual read for me. I liked best the historic and modern legends of werewolves. The last section about astral animal transformations was also interesting. The author explained well some concepts that were unfamiliar to me. I enjoyed his sense of humor.

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!

Very informative. Lots of facts and easy to understand. I will be reading the rest of his books.

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]
