FullSizeRender

Genre: Non-Fiction

Page Count: 243

Publication Date: 1986

Summary: Based on all of the collected research done up to publication, the author lists arguments for both believers and non-believers of the Loch Ness monster.  He reports fraudulent sightings and hoaxes as well as confirmed scientific evidence. Famous pictures are included though for the most part, they are fairly grainy.

Recommended: Yes. If you have any interest in the Loch Ness monster, this is a good book – regardless of whether you believe in its existence or not. Appendix B provides a list of reported sightings dating back to 565 AD.

If You’re Offended: No problems here.

Noteworthy Excerpts: “The habitat is more than twenty miles long, a mile wide, and hundreds of feet deep, with water that absorbs light rather as does weak tea and thereby limits visibility to twenty or thirty feet even under powerful illumination.”     “It should be clear that a given fact will be assigned quite different significance depending on what one is looking for, or expects to find, or is predisposed to believe.”
