The Werewolf's Guide To Life reads like an informal text book. With the information neatly tucked into 23 chapters, it's a necessary resource for licanthropic newbies and a good reminder for older werewolves who need to brush up on protocol.
The book covers various topics including: "The Trouble With Vampires," "Werewolf Hunters," "Home is Where You Hang Your Restraint System," and "Romance and the Modern Licanthrope."
It comprehensively covers the obstacles a modern werewolf might encounter while focusing on safety for both werewolves and their human friends.
While the book has some truly funny parts, it becomes repetitive and predictable in what advice it would give. Mostly, it's a coffee-table book. The kind of thing to be picked up, scanned, and chuckled at. It also may be a good resource for authors of werewolf stories.
My favorite parts were the snippets of stories at the beginning of the chapters written by various contributing werewolves. While not engaging in a plot-driven sort of way, it was entertaining.
Have you been attacked by a wolf-like creature in the last 30 days? Was it after the sun had set and under a full moon? If you answered, “yes” to both these questions, there’s a very good chance that you were bitten by a werewolf. You now have less than a month before the full moon returns and with it your first transformation into a savage, bloodthirsty beast.
Survival is an option, but first, know this:
* Werewolves are real.
* The majority of lycanthropes who do not have access to this book die during or shortly after their first transformations, generally due to heart failure, gunshot wounds, exposure, drowning or suicide.
* Hollywood horror movies are NOT to be used as guides to living as a werewolf. Their goal is not to educate, but to entertain. As a result, they are largely ignorant of the realities of the condition.
* Ignorance creates monsters; lycanthropy does not.
* You are not a monster.
The Werewolf's Guide to Life cuts through the fiction and guides you through your first transformation and beyond, offering indispensable advice on how to tell if you’re really a werewolf, post-attack etiquette, breaking the news to your spouse, avoiding government abduction, and how to not just survive, but thrive. You cannot afford to not read this book. Your very life depends on it.
