The book is Real Monsters, Gruesome Critters, And Beasts From The Dark Side by Brad Steiger.
The book is by renown paranormal author Brad Steiger. It is divided into sections and is perhaps more easily enjoyed by skipping the sections that do not interest the reader or by reading the book one section at a time, disregarding the order of the sections in the book.
The good thing about the book is that is has a little something for everyone. In the book one will find stories of ghosts, demons, vampires, bigfoot, bogeymen, werewolves, and nearly every other supernatural "nasty" one can think of. The bad things about the book are that most of the people in the supposedly-true-tales remain anonymous. Additionally Steiger makes certain factual errors that may be difficult to spot unless one has priorly researched a subject or incident. For example, Brandi Blackbear was not a witch possessed by a demon who put a curse on her teacher. Instead, Blackbear was a Wiccan, a witch who doesn't do curses, and was a victim of intolerance by a paranoid teacher who falsely accused her of using black magic to make him sick. Steiger also includes a section on Hoodoo that contains a lot of nonsense. In fact, the sections on Hoodoo, Voodoo, Santeria, and the other African-derived religions and/or practices are quite out of place in this book.
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, I give it a 6..
