I give it three stars because it is informative, it is a historic recounting of the myth, going back centuries to what was then contemporary (1880's), but be advised that it is very unsettling and absolutely NOT intended for children.

I would've given it 5 stars, but the typos were distracting at times. If you're into werewolves, the myth of others, you'll enjoy this book. I really like the fact that I got it for free.
The first section contains the myths of werewoles and the author went to extreme effort to collect many myths of werewolves and other were-creatures. The second section contains historical trial records on criminals that claimed they were werewolves or were committing other horrors that myth associated with werewolves. I couldn't finish this book because the crimes commited were too obscene for me to stomach.
Overall though it was a very interesting book. If you are intersted in psycology, myths, or criminal history then you should get this book, especially for free from kindle.
