    1. The best thing about this book is probably its extensive bibliography, as well as its reprinting a number of eyewitness accounts that aren't among those generally included in books of this type.It's really sloppily edited, and that bothered me. As examples, the text repeatedly identifies Kent Island and the Chester River as being in Virginia, when they're both in Maryland. On page 170, the text states that the record alligator snapping turtle is 236 pounds, while page 176 claims that the record [...]

    2. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The book starts off with an introduction, a little bit about what known animals could be the clause for some sighting. Then goes on to Nessie and how the book classifies the unknown animals in the sea, lake, and rivers. The main part of the book will start off with “Classic Sea Serpent” then describes the creatures that make up the category it‘s under, give the range or location, etc and give some sightings [...]

    3. I've been waiting for this book all my life! Ever since reading Bernard Huevelmans as a kid, anyway. Now i want to go on a lake monster road trip. Just a passing reference to South Carolina's Altamaha-Ha, though.

    4. a very mixed book. great compilation of evidence, but the science sometimes used to explain it is fuzzy and disorganized. it ignores a lot of evolutionary theory that could be very useful. i found this a bit maddening at times. however, it is also absurdly entertaining. I recommend the section on giant sharks. ignore the section on giant swimming lizards with too many legs. great compilation, but you will have to make your own connections, and sift the good stuff from the bad.

    5. This seems unfair. One star? Its just so boring. What could be really interesting and cool, reads as a college textbook. It is, after all, a field guide. But I've read other books on the same topic that are just as informative and much morefun.

    6. I found this a fun and easy-to-read introduction to the subject of sea-going cryptids. Coleman's categorization is thorough, so just about every sort of monster that lives in a water environment of any kind is covered, so what it lacks in depth it certainly makes up for in breadth.
