Monsters, is a good primer and look over of many of the common, creatures and things which go bump in the night that a occult practioner may have the "ill" or "good" fortune (depending on your view) of coming across. He does it in a way which as always is backed by a long list of research he has done on each of the monsters, which is matched with a great bibliography in the back.
The biggest thing I liked about this book was his approach. He does not go hyper paranoid on us and tell the reader to lock himself in a protective circle and banish three times a day. As well as he doesn’t go the other way, especially when it comes to Fae, and get all Fluffy Bunny on us, he presents the Historical writings say, first hand and others experiences, along with Occult Theories and ways Of identifying and dealing with each category of creature.
At the end he also provides some good suggestions on how to go about investigating incidents, and dealing with them. As well as some great techniques for "handling" situations.
The only thing I would like to add is I would really love to see him right a second book to this, covering intermediate and advanced topics. One can hope!
In the end, this is a good and informative read, where you will definitely leave with greater knowledge and practices to boot!
Plausible at least from the perspective of the magically minded. Based on some of the other reviews, it seems like those that are...errr...uninitiated into the world beyond the material may not understand what Greer is discussing. However, if you have an open mind about the paranormal, I'd highly recommend this book. It goes far beyond merely describing the supernatural but actually attempts to explain it and gives good tips for how to protect yourself when the supposedly impossible happens.
