    This is an exceptional and well written text on the lives of real vampires.  It details the ways they're connection to the old and new myths of vampires, and does an excellent job giving the reader an understanding of why real/psychic vampires are the way they are.  I would recommend this book to anyone interested in real vampires or vampire myths.

    Nonsense, just complete nonsense. This book is of no interest to anyone who is interested in vampires from a folkloric or literary point of view. It's not even a fun discussion of vampire lore. Nor is it a serious discussion of real possibilities of what might account for the belief in vampires. It is the ravings of a delusional person who pretends that their pseudo-science theories are fact.
