"Yetis, Sasquatch & Hairy Giants" is certainly worth the money for anyone, particularly a newcomer, who is interested in the obvious topics. It is loaded with various modern accounts and theories, as well as old world tales regarding the cryptids in question. That said, this is by no means a book taken in neutral stance, and the author even goes so far as to hint at a connection between extraterrestrials and bigfoot.
Another point that I feel needs clarifying is the perspective of the book: it is not a collection of the authors adventures as some may hope for from a "Modern Day Indiana Jones". It is a chronicle with some speculation attached. That isn't per se a bad thing, however, as there is an extensive bibliography full of sources that may interest some.
Unfortunately, for all the data within, the entire book is marred by typographical errors ranging from spelling to obvious doubletakes in thought. For instance, errors such as "One major sighting was reported in listed by the XXXXXX Newspaper" are common place. The author clearly changed his approach but did not delete his earlier typing.
The good news is that typos are not so common as to make reading painful, which is important to note seeing as you get around 375 pages of materiel plus additional imagery and source files. For comparable books, that is A LOT of product. And to that end I say this one is a winner; a winner with goofy cover art, predictable grammar trouble, and a somewhat far out take on what many consider to be a far out topic, but a winner nonetheless.
