The chapter regarding Ketchum was essentially a gathering of loose blog posts and quotes that detracted from my previous interest in Greene's thoughts but instead was given everyone else's opinion.
The final chapter is also just a s***-fest on a lot of people in the field and how old and tired Greene is with everything. The final line, "Life's a bitch." is also a cheesy way to wrap the book up.
Overall, the book summarizes a lot of recent drama in the Bigfoot community but Greene puts everyone down but himself (mostly). I wish Greene gave more of his first-hand accounts as those were more interesting and the strong points of the book.
I was getting bored with the first one third of the book and skipped much of it until I got to around page 140. That's when the real story starts. Before that, you get his life story and failed expeditions trying to hunt down Bigfoot. All that could have been summarized in a few short paragraphs in one chapter. It wasn't written badly, it just did not need to have taken up so much space.
The dirt he exposes is quite eye-opening. But, as one reviewer already pointed out, he participated in some of these same questionable group expeditions just like the money hungry Matt Moneymaker. He never quit this guys huckster organization....he had to be kicked out for being too critical of some of the phoney people and "evidence"......and kudos to him for doing that.
There was one comment by Justin Smeja, alleged bigfoot mother and child murderer, that branded him as a scumbag of the highest order right away. I won't reveal what it was. I will let others come to that conclusion if they decide to read this book. I do find it troubling that the author spent a whole chapter tearing this guy's improbable story apart and then does a 180 about face in the next chapter because he passed a lie detector test. Gee, I guess chronic liars and sociopaths never fool lie detectors and innocent people never fail them. There's a reason they're not accepted in any court in this land. For what it's worth, Smeja's partner in crime refused to take a lie detector test and gave an excuse even the author found ridiculous.
Bottom line: despite some hypocrisy and flaws, I still enjoyed having read this book and the goings on behind the scenes. I do not agree with the author on some of his conclusions; but, he does a credible job presenting the warts and petty infighting that many in this field bring to the table and their websites. It's nice to have it summarized and know who these people are that would jump on questionable evidence just to have their case made about Sasquatches or make themselves look important.
The writing in this book was tedious at times . The author starts a story and then wanders off with a character;it makes you wonder if you're on the right page . He repeats certain parts of his stories over an over .
I was surprised to see that the author mispelled " Patterson" so many times in this book. I thought the criticism of Dr. Meldrum's., drone project was disingenuous. Especially after the author told us that he crashed his ultralight ( flying lawn chair with VW engine) as he practicing to fly over BF and try to shoot them with a dart gun. It was fortunate that he was saved from himself.
Overall, not a bad book if you're looking for some information on the some of least desirable characters involved in the big business of Bigfoot.
