This is not a long book, nor is it exhaustive, or learned, or especially sceptical or credulous. What is is a brisk, refreshing and at times funny book by an amateur enthusiast who claims no expertise, but just tells it like he sees it. Some cryptids he thinks are nonsense, others not so much and that’s about it. Rex Cuttys style is conversational and direct, and I found this to be an excellent light hearted reference for some research I am doing. Loses one star only because some typos remain.
