Are you subject to savage moods, extreme and unexplained buffness, and cravings for meat on the rare side?

— A quiz to determine if you’re a menace to society, and tips on taking precautions
— Planning your social schedule around the lunar calendar
— Dating hints, from the risks and rewards of cross-species romance to avoiding your sweetheart’s family pet
— Killer fashion suggestions, from urban (leather and hardware) to a cute and foxy kitsune look
— Ideas, decorations, and recipes for a full-moon party
— Tales of real-life werewolves, plus lore and legends from around the world
— Juicy reading material and gems of the silver screen
A glossy guide to the world of lycanthropy. The third in Candlewick's tongue-in-cheek How to Be... paranormal guides (How to Be a Zombie, 2010, etc.), this handbook provides easy-to-browse tips and tricks for adapting to the werewolf lifestyle, essential fashion advice for daily life ("Upon returning to human form, you may find your clothing tattered but still functional. Keep in mind that rips and shreds aren't always a bad thing") and resources for building the lycanthropic community. Skillfully blended into the quizzes and lists are pieces of werewolf legend: locations that are commonly associated with shape-shifters, diseases that were misidentified as supernatural traits and actual wolf behaviors. There's both a historical guide to werewolves in legend, movies and literature and a modern compendium of lycanthropic media. Between song lists, den guides and movie suggestions for adapting to a hairy new lifestyle are quizzes to determine werewolf personae and a makeup guide for bad fur days. Though unapologetically campy and an example of pop culture at its finest, Valentino's work is essential for those who are ruled by the moon.(Nonfiction. 12 & up)
