See, that blurb is a bit misleading but ultimately in a good way: it's not as cutesy as it's made out to be. Thanks to the likes of certain glittering vampire movies, Karg's book is trying to cater to a particular female pubescent clientele that may or may not have an affinity for a particular shirtless "werewolf," of which she mentions constantly throughout the book. But THE GIRL'S GUIDE is actually a really good cliff notes source for all things werewolf, without pictures. Chagrin, Team Jacob. Chagrin.

From their very beginnings in legends and lore to their current cinematic manifestations, Karg covers them all in quick succession. If you're a writer looking for an easy way out but not willing to go all SMeyer-lazy, THE GIRL'S GUIDE is a great tool to use for those quick and easy look-ups. From how the varieties transform, to what they look like, to how they're killed and the celluloid offspring they spawned, you can find it here. Are there more comprehensive guides out there? Of course. But I'm sure none have the spunk of THE GIRL'S GUIDE.

So don't be fooled by the title, the cover or the book blurb. THE GIRL'S GUIDE is a good book to have when you're just getting into the werewolf lore. Don't be turned off at the notion that it actually plays into the same scheme as the likes of THE VAMPIRE IS JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU does. It doesn't. Like I said, the kitch is a ploy to bring in the Twihards. There's genuine information between these covers that you don't want to miss, especially if werewolves are your thing.

It just kind of saddens me that publishers think they need to strum the heartstrings of Twihards everywhere in order to get this to sell. Marketing it for the information bloom it is should have been enough, in my opinion. Sure it's snazzy and quirky and plays pretend really well. But it would be a shame for THE GIRL'S GUIDE to get thrown aside by the same market that actually wants to know how to bag a werewolf. Because girlies, this one doesn't actually do that.

So when you pick up THE GIRL'S GUIDE, just remember you'll get a fill of werewolf information when you read and you'll be fine. Then, if this has piqued your interest enough, move on to the meatier stuff. Just remember where you started.

So the cover of this book made me think it was some kind of kiddy fiction thing, while alluring to the younger crowd that's not all that interesting.

But when I looked at the table of contents and started reading I would have to say this book is a staple for the amateur werewolf lover. It has a little bit of information on just about everything werewolf, including a nice insight into werewolf myths over the ages and in many different cultures. The list of well done werewolf movies was also nicely done and has inspired me to add quite a few movies to my 'to watch list'. Overall I have to give this book a five out of five. It's a great general encyclodia of werewolfish lore information and I'm very happy I spent the ten dollars on it. I highly recommend it :)

I'm not a girl but I love werewolves so I thought I would read this book. Terrible mistake. I took the quiz at the front of the book and quickly realized the quiz was wrong. The author was confusing Hollywood werewolf lore for real werewolf lore. It just went downhill from there. The book did nothing for me. I honestly think this book needs a major overhaul. The subject matter screams illustration and pictures. The cover is boring. The content needs to be reworked. Sorry, but this book gets a failing grade from me.

The title of this book fits its content. It is debatable whether the author has a real definition of a werewolf, as she lumps all sorts of things together and labels them "werewolf" just because they have once been called that way (the chupacabra in a low budget werewolf movie for instance) or somehow resemble the 20th century depiction of a werewolf (e.g. the egyptian god Anubis). On the other hand the author seems totally ignorant about other topics that should be known when you write about werewolves or maybe ignored them. Due to this lack of clear definition what a werewolf is, this book is nothing for amateurs since it only promotes the bad habit of labelling everything the way you like it. The author doesn't seem to know the difference between a werewolf and a ghost that takes on wolf form, she draws connections to topics were there are none and especially her claim that the word "lycan" is the oldest word for werewolf is simply preposterous. Any person with advanced knowledge will find this book a waste of time, unless they want to see a good example on writing a bad book. For amateurs this book is dangerous because it is in no way an introduction to the topic and the list of werewolf movies is wrong since e.g. Brotherhood of the Wolf doesn't feature werewolves.
I can only say that you should safe your money and read "The Curse of the Werewolf: Fantasy, Horror and the Beast Within" or "Metamorphoses Of The Werewolf: A Literary Study from Antiquity Through the Renaissance" instead when you are a starter, but not this book.
