This book is really fun! A great book to gift to a friend. It's well written, clever and surprisingly chock full of fact.

It's also a good one to read on the bus, when you want the seat next to you to stay open and untaken. Especially if you read it at night, looking shifty and sweaty, with some claw marks put in the cover.

Many people who suddenly are infected by the medical condition known as lycanthropy according to this book die before during their first transformation into a werewolf. The Werewolf's Guide to Life is just what the title suggests, a handy guide that tells you, the recently bitten one, what is about to happen to your body, how when you do transform into a werewolf you won't be able to control yourself from ripping apart any human in your vicinity, and the guide will stress over and over again how important it is that you restrain yourself properly when the next "moon set" occurs. Also importantly that you restrain yourself in a way that will enable you to get yourself out when your full human intelligence returns after you returned to your normal human form. Handily at the back of the book is a nice appendix that tells you every date those three moons will occur until December 2011. Not sure if the publishers will release an updated version for the years after but if not that appendix info will be a bit dated if your reading this review after 2011.

This book dispels the myths and wrongful assumptions that are out there about werewolves. If you've just been bitten you need to read this book. I had never even thought about how still wearing a wedding ring would mean the loss of a finger as the hand expanded cutting off circulation to the finger. Likewise don't make the restraints you are using to secure yourself so as not to wipe out innocent humans to tight for similar reasons. There's tons of information in this manual that you just probably have won't have thought of before it's too late.

Format: Paperback
Similar in fashion to The Zen of Zombie and The Vampire Survival Guide, this handbook for the newly bitten werewolf shows you how to handle your transformations, new life, and cravings without hurting anyone. While the book on the whole was mildly entertaining and easy to read, all it really presents is a repetitive reminder on chaining yourself up in a saferoom for three nights a month (your moons). It covers concepts like your different stages you will encounter, longevity, how to feed, who to tell your secret, where to live, and avoiding doctors but always comes back around to securing yourself for those nights. You quickly grow tired of it. There's even mini-sidebars on real people that were purportedly werewolves, at least in the authors' presentation. I will say my teenage son read it after me and he laughed constantly. He's not a bookreader but he finished this in two days so it really interested him. The books not bad but it is far from great. Don't get me wrong, if you like these types of humor, tongue-in-cheek guidebooks, it is certainly worth adding to your collection.

Ritch Duncan and Bob Powers have written a marvelous little 'how to' guide for the recenlty turned werewolf and have managed not to lose their sense of humor in the process. Inside this gem of a book are the much needed tips to help the newly bitten to more readily adapt to their new condition and state of being. These tips not only will make the transformation process go as smoothly as possibly but they will also save lives. The book is also filled with wonderful little werewolf factoids that will amaze and entertain. Remember, it's all fun and games until someone tears the throats out of loved ones. Save your family and chain your self up each month.

And I ended up reading it through TWICE before I finally gave it to the person I had intended it for! It's very well written, and a real hoot if you like comical "self help"-type books. Literally the PERFECT gift for the werewolf in your life!

This novel was extremely hilarious and informative! Any werewolf lover can benefit from reading this book. It details the transformation of the average lycanthrope and how to manage it properly without harming anyone in any way. When I first found it I thought it would be silly and cartoonish-but it turned out to be witty and insightful to the werewolf condition.

The book is set up in sections, each chapter beginning with a quote from one of the many Lycanthropes interviewed for this manual. It explains the most fundamental elements of what it is to be a werewolf, and it makes sure to remind you that you are NOT a monster.

From restraint systems to "furry" lovers, this book explains everything. It's definitely a must read for any and all werewolves out there!

If becoming a werewolf was true this book would be the great "user's manual" of being a werewolf. It has some great comedy and ideas in it. At times it made me wish I was a werewolf and for those who want a good laugh and imagine what it would be like to be a werewolf this is the book.
