As expected there is a lot of information on the Loch Ness Monster, from sighting reports to discussions of possible identities (Shuker favours the plesiosaur identity, which he presents a good case for, but also discusses other proposed identities as well) to things like Nessie-themed music and a poem dedicated to Nessie.
There are also sections of the book about things other than Nessie, such as other mystery creatures of other Scottish lochs, a brief discussion about Irelands dobhar-chu (an otter-like mystery creature), and old myths and folklore about supernatural water horses like the kelpies (plus a fictional story about some children who run afoul of such a being).
The information in the book was well presented and there was also a lot of Nessie themed art by various different artists. And as is often the case with Karl Shuker books I learned of some mysteries I'd never previously heard of, such as about some mysterious small invertebrates living in Loch Ness- not nearly as famous as Nessie but nevertheless worthy of study.
If you are interested in the mystery of the Loch Ness Monster, you will quite likely enjoy this book.
He doesn't have the space to address every reported sighting, but does look at some of the most well known and interesting. In short, this makes for an excellent summation of 'Nessie' and possible kin. I greatly enjoyed it, and highly recommend it!
