The best book I've read on the subject. Serves both as a summary and introduction.

Neil Arnold is no armchair cryptozoologist he gets out into the field and gets his hands dirty. He knows how to do research too and it shows in this book. Monster is easily the best A to Z of weird creatures on the market. It contains classic creatures like dragons, werewolves, vampires, lake monsters and such but its real strength lies in the weird and wonderfull 'things' (as Ivan T Sanderson would call them) that you have never heard of before like the Damascus Apartments dog, the Wi-Lu-Gho-Yuk and the Illinois Horror. If you want to know what these things and countless other escapees from the menagerie of the damned read this book.
A must for all forteans.

This was my second Neil Arnold book purchased (haunted london being the first!) I didnt know what to expect The book can be read cover to cover or you can dip in and out for reference or if you fancy a flick through.

its written much like an encyclopedia in alphabetical order, There is with out a doubt alot of research and hours and what appears to be a collection of a liftime worth of information here, some entries go into fairly great detail on the said creature some just a quick brief! along with that the author gives us a star rating of how likely this entry is to be real given the current information.

Absolutely everything is covered her from vampires to werewolves spring heeled jack to the unheard of and simply unholy!

A great read to anyone interested and an almost complete collection of any thing you might want to read about.

This book is not simply a quick put together of local stories it very much more and worth having to anybody even if they dont buy another book on this subject

I wanted a book that described many myths and legends and folklore and zoological monsters for an art project and this book couldn't of fitted the bill more. Great a to z off every monster or creature you'll ever hear about or not hear about! Very in depth, only downside was I was hoping for a few more illustrations but the descriptions help the imagination.

A truly fasinating insight into the world of zooform.
Wherever you are a researcher, interested, curious, want to learn more or even may have witnessed one of the zooform mentioned, then this book is really worth purchasing.

Neil Arnold has done tremendously in bringing together this A-Z of Zooform phenomena. This book is the first of its kind and is sure to go as a classic.

This book is the first and the best of its kind, destined to be owned, loved and highly prized by many.

Mind-blowingly interesting and fantastically written Monster! - The A-Z of Zooform Phenomena is a real insight into the existence of the entries that it pertains to.

Neil Arnold is a talent as well as a passionate and dedicated researcher and this shines through in his book.

For interest, profession, research, leisure, love of nightmare inducing or just because you stumbled across it- YOU MUST OWN THIS BOOK.
