Format: Paperback
Opportunity for an interesting book about mysterious animals completely squandered by inclusion of ufology, folklore and obvious hoaxes and exclusion of Yeti, Nessie and other obvious cases. Daft personal anecdotes, lack of skepticism and bizarre suggestions (time travellers, inter dimensional travel) hardly help; nor does the fact that the book opens with skyfish, which had been discredited years before this book was published. A fun look at US folklore, but don't come to it expecting any science.

This is definetly one of the greatest cryptozoological books i have ever read.It is well written, if a little bit more on the paranormal side but offers a brillant insight to the great study of cryptozoology.It dosen't delve into the more 'famous'cryptids (i:e Bigfoot, Loch ness monster.)It then talks about more mythological beasts (Dragons,Kappas etc.)and the it starts to talk about more unkown cryptis sightings (Beast of the Bray road, ant he boston lemur etc.)but it is still extremely high up on my cryptozoological book-shelf!(this is written by g.maginn's son(the greatest cryptozoologist of all time!)

One of the better Cryptozoology books on the market, however the illustrations let it down a bit. Also some of the creatures mentioned on the cover aren't in the book?

1.0 out of 5 stars You're kidding, right? 24 April 2012
By D. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wouldn't say I'm an expert on Cryptids, but this wasn't my first rodeo. I only made it to page 39 before I was disgusted. This does not read as a Field Guide, more like "Deena Wast Budd's Musings on Cryptids and Other Beasts." Each entry is a cursory look at what the author thinks of each creature, no depth of history, modus operandi, characteristics, etc.
The Skyfish entry doesn't seem to belong in the book, and she doesn't attempt to argue that it does. The section on The Kentucky Goblins is completely mislabeled. They sound nothing like what I understand Goblins to be and she doesn't explain what Goblins are, how they act, etc., so that I might accept them as such. They seem more like Aliens, but she doesn't address that either.
On top of that, there doesn't seem to be any organization among the entries either. I've written more in-depth and cohesive material when I was an inexperienced undergraduate student. I get the feeling that this is a collection of small jokes that Budd is playing on the field of Cryptozoology.
Although childish in presentation, I would easily recommend "The Book of Dragons & Other Mythical Beasts" by Joseph Nigg over this rubbish. For future reference, "A Field Guild to Demons, Fairies, Fallen Angels, and Other Subversive Spirits" by Carol K. Mack and Dinah Mack is a better indication of how a Field Guild ought to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Campy and fun 4 Oct. 2014
By Joynerbiz - Published on Amazon.com

For those of us who are veterans in the paranormal field, this might not be the book for you. But, if you are interested in a light-hearted introduction into the field of cryptozoology, this is a great book. I had a good time reading it and even picked up a few items regarding lore that I have yet to discover. All around it was a fun read, albeit, quick. If you have a youngster who is interested in cryptids and the field of cryptozoology, this is a great gift!

I enjoyed this book because it was written in an informative way, covered several different cryptids, and included some humor I really enjoyed!
All in all, not bad.
