    Introduction to Reality

    This book is by far the best book (of the journalism type) that i have read. It gives people a real view into the world of vampyres which is a good movement from the 'media processed' vampire. I recomend it to everyone, fans of the mythical scene or not. Its a real eye opener and well worth the readers time.
