I bought this book out of morbid curiosity, but through reading enjoyed it for it's sheer content. I read about demons and spirits I had come across in other readings, but never understood their 'biology'. This book ties together a lot of information from folklore and even pop culture. This is a good book to supplement anyone's library.

Everything you need to know about the most famous demons, monsters, angels, and faeries. How to get rid of them, what they like, where they are from... Just everything...

I would not recommend this book to most readers. There's nothing wrong with it on the surface. It gives easy-to-digest chunks of folklore and beliefs around certain mythological creatures and provides an interesting stepping stone to head for other directions. But that's all its good for. This book is inaccurately researched, lumping many separate myths together into one entry and adding things seemingly out of the blue. As far as modern demonology goes, there's little if anything that's relevant, and what they do have is entirely useless. This isn't a bad book to pick up from the library, but it's not worth the money on it's own.

The book acts like an encyclopedia for deamons and other mythical creatures. Information from all over the world. It gives you an idea of what kind of superstitions some cultures have compared to others.

This is a great compendium for any author needing to include a demon of any type in their writing! Great descriptions and explanations!

This book focuses on the most unbelievable and useless myths of the world. It really doesn't have much to do about Western Mythology or even modern Demonology. Didn't find the information exactly useful on any level. It deals with more archaic and myths long forgotten because of sheer inaccuracy and boredom. Many of the myths take root in other countries throughout the world, once you've read a couple of stories the whole book seems pretty redundant.
