  1. Elizabeth says:
    Unfortunately, Steiger s references are questionable at best in this book Most of the entries cite his own works and some even cite The National Enquirer , of all things Oh, and he also manages to refer to every serial killer and even Bigfoot as a werewolf like.For those looking for a properly researched book on werewolves in folklore and history, you ll definitely want to look elsewhere This is all hearsay, pop culture, and the author s own opinions.

  2. Andre says:
    To say that this book was strange and weird would be the understatement of the year despite that it was only March when I finished it.Although the author left out some of the ridiculous examples of the first edition like gargoyles I still wonder why he included some entries and ignored other topics altogether And what do many of them have to do with werewolves anyway or even lycanthropes By what modus oparandi did he choose them Many of his inclusions of serial killers and rapists only make sens [...]

    If you want to expand your interest in werewolves and other shape shifters beyond fiction, to the realms of history, science and the occult, start with this book Not only does The Werewolf Book have entries on all manner of shape shifting beings from myth, and accounts of supposed real life were critters, it also encompasses the books and movies that influenced the image of shape shifting and werewolves throughout history and made it what it was today.Nothing is treated as trivial Even the effec [...]

    If you want to take your study of werewolves and other shape shifters out of fiction and into the realms of history, science and the occult this is the books to start with Not only does The Werewolf Book have entries on all manner of shape shifting beings from myth, and accounts of supposed real life were critters, it also encompasses the books and movies that influenced the image of shape shifting and werewolves throughout history and made it what it was today Nothing is treated as trivial, not [...]

    Disclaimer that I am not so much finished as in I read all the pages, but finished as in I m upset and can read no further How could I, when only two paragraphs are dedicated to Anubis, while over double that is given to a nameless girl in Fremont, California, who believes that all people have an animal spirit inside and that hers was unlocked when a mountain lion bit her even though she s supposedly a werewolf, albeit one who can t transform, not a werelion Anything with the word encyclopedia i [...]

  6. Steve Asher says:
    I have been a reader of Steiger s work for many years now All in all, I thoroughly enjoy this book It gives a wide overview of lycanthropy from many countries and eras It was pretty well written He tried to include a lot of references as well as many photographs and illustrations If you are looking for an extensive study of any certain case, look elsewhere However, if one is looking for a good book that is full of werewolves and other were creatures read on I also suggest picking up Steiger s Re [...]

  7. Tracie says:
    Another disappointment Another mistitled book Far pages devoted to serial killers than werewolves Granted some of the killers claimed to be werewolves and I am ok with their inclusion but most did not Page fillers Also numerous articles on vampires and zombies Not their relationship to the title beast but stand alone articles This books saving graces are that the information is correct or as correct as it can be and actual sources are cited Not a rigorous academic citation but it is something.

  8. Willow says:
    This book is if anything, very entertaining I think some of the stuff in here is a questionable, but I wasn t looking for a book with hard core facts There is a lot of werewolf lore, werewolf folktales, movie summaries, tidbits about cannibalism, serial killers, witch hunters, vampires, succubae, and the Malleus Maleficarum It s definitely a mix bag I wanted to get some interesting tidbits on werewolves and I definitely got some from this book.

  9. Tiffany Lynn Kramer says:
    My take away from this encyclopedia 1st Steiger wasn t satisfied with the amount of material he found on shapeshifters so a felt it necessary to include sections on kappa, gholes, and necrophilia to name a few 2nd by his reasoning all serial killers classify as werewolves regardless of their modus operandi.

  10. Samantha Breza says:
    Very informative There are many guides to werewolf lore out there, but this one is the most up to date I ve ever seen.

  11. Comicfairy (Leanne) says:
    Been studying shape shifting beings for years as research for a series of books I am writing and rarely do I come across a compendium this helpful This book was recommended to me awhile back as one of the best werewolf and shape shifter books out there and it didn t dissapoint Easy to read, very comprehensive, with every chapter featuring a letter Many of the entries were very movie tv laden though, which was my only real beef with the title.

  12. Paige says:
    Okay so here s the thing It covers all these werewolf legends including movies It s not an earth shattering book but it does open you up to your own theories It s basically just tells you all the stories and legends about werecreatures It has a feeling like a research paper though I have a feeling many of the entries where part of some college paper.

  13. Kirsi says:
    Steiger is all too interested in what this and that sex pervert made behind this and that bush than werewolves Too much serial killers and other sadists who have zero werewolf connection, while sprinkling his voyeuristic sleaze with misuse of psychotic as synonym to depraved has good article about psychosis, Brad And stop blaming wolves for all the HUMAN violence.

  14. Samantha Bulldog says:
    This book will make you wonder what goes through some people s minds when they do the weirdest things This book will also bring up the question of just how sane you are for reading it It has everything from Jeffery Dauhmer to snakewomen and everything imbetween If you ever wanted to know if some one is insane that you just read this book.

  15. Cara says:
    An interesting collection of information about werewolves and other shape shifters, including even vampires and witches since they lore used to be closely intertwined.I wish there had been less emphasis on some of the movies, but all and all, it was a good, quick read.

  16. Jordan says:
    I like to skim through this book whenever reading books with shapeshifters as characters and around Halloween It s extremely interesting and entertaining I love supernaural subjects and would suggest that anyone else who is to pick up this book.

  17. Kerri Simpson says:
    I think it was pretty decent I mean if your looking for 101 facts on werewolves then good luck Some of the origins folklore and movie books and references were pretty interesting Definitely a good place to start for referencing fictional things for stories.

  18. Kristine says:
    My 3 favorite things to read and write about are werewolves shape shifters, vampires, and witches I wouldn t be able to write about werewolves or shape shifters at all without this novel.


  19. Jessica says:
    Excellent reference book Helping me a lot in finishing a story for my creative writing class.

  20. Kathleen says:
    i have a short review on my blog wolfsecho 2014 03

  21. Lizette says:
    I really encourage people on reading this book if you are into the whole supernatural world.

  22. Erin says:
    Nothing a google search can t tell you Not worth giving money for.

  23. Lori Schiele says:
    This book truly is an encyclopedia It gives lists and descriptions of movies, books and other shape shifter items that are out and about in the world at the time the book was written.


  24. Adalira Morningstar says:
    I read this one back when I was maybe thirteen years old If I m not mistaken, it was one of the first books I ever checked out of the library.It was a lot impressive back then.

  25. Rosanna Leo says:
    Excellent resource for the paranormal author, or fans of the genre Very detailed and fun.
