For those actually looking into dragons, I do not reccomend this
For those actually looking into dragons, I do not reccomend this book. While the basic information is accurate, a good majority of it is simply ridiculous. The worst example is when it talks about imperial dragons (page 23), the book shows an illustration of a Chinese Dragon with the caption that says "Imperial Dragon" and the dragon has only 3 claws when it clearly says "The dragons that adorned the Emperor's robes sported five toes instead of the usual four. These dragons were called shen-lung or Imperial Dragons" (Page 24). This book also frequently refers to other forms of media including stories & legends (no big deal to me), video games, movies, DnD games, and even childrens' television shows. This book may be a great way to spark some interest in the Dragons, but I would not use it as a primary source for information. I DO like how it goes into legends and stories from various cultures all around the world, including Africa. Compared to other books, and what I've heard regarding dragons, this book was a huge disappointment for me.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
