    An Interesting Summary, Needs New Edition

    Another reviewer complained about the biographies in this volume. If you are dealing with a speculative, controversial subject like cryptozoology, it helps to know about its participants. That said, this work is already dated. It would be good to have a new revised edition updating what has occurred in the last decade. I think the authors could have downplayed some of the wackier entries like thunderbirds and giant apes (how could we overlook 15 foot flying birds and 10+ foot hairy monsters?) and in favor of more coverage on plausible cryptids. The book also seemed to give more coverage to ape-like creatures and to neglect other mammals and birds. However, this is the cheapest book of its kind on B&N and could have been a blatant rip-off instead of a pretty good introduction to unknown animals. If you like the offbeat, this should be quite enjoyable.

    Too many entries on people in the field, not enough on the creatures.

    I bought this book because of a passing interest in the subject. The entries on the creatures explored are set up alphabetically and are mostly informative, if somewhat brief. What ruined the books value to me was the entries on the people involved in this field of study. There are just too many of these entries and they are usually longer and more detailed than those on the beasts the title leads one to believe are examined. I'd say that 3/5 of the book is devoted to people. It should be titled 'CryptoZoologists A-Z'.

    Great but needs revision.

    This is a great book but a revised edition is needed. Some of the creatures in this book such as the bodegezou are now known to exist and therefore no longer fall under the catagory of cryptids.
