Does an ancient monster lurk in the depths of Scotland's Loch Ness? Is this creature the last living dinosaur? What secrets does the mysterious loch hold?
For centuries, an international eye has been focused on Loch Ness and the belief that a creature, "Nessie," lives deep within the isolated body of cold green water. The Loch Ness Monster: The Evidence is the final word on this mystery; a compact but comprehensive review of the principal evidence for the existence of an unknown creature (or creatures) in Loch Ness.
Beginning with an explanation of the origin of belief in the monster, and the myths and deception surrounding the story, this volume surveys the eyewitness evidence, reviews the most notorious reports, as well as photos and instrumental evidence. Steuart Campbell, a scientific skeptic, exposes the falsehoods behind each alleged sighting, explores every new shred of evidence, and discusses the sonar work of the U.S. Academy of Applied Science's exploration. Included is commentary on other such nautical mysteries and sightings in other seas of the world.
The definitive work on the subject, The Loch Ness Monster is a must read for monster buffs and others who've always wanted to know the truth about Loch Ness.

Some people dont believe and some do. I'm one that does, when my family told me about Nessy I was hooked from the start, I am 16 years old, and feel there is more out there than the expected. But, as I try to get my life on trake, I than hope to be able to travel to Scotland and find out for myself. The more everyone writes and talkes about what they saw in Lock Ness it has got me addicted to Nessy. The fact that what I believe is my decision on certain topics. As the years go by more and more sightings have apeared and more frequent to. I hope one day to find Nessy and prove to the world that there are more things out there than what we really know and can see!!
I think that it is a very good and interesting book.You can read it happily and without boring.
