Have you been attacked by a wolf-like creature in the last 30 days? Was it after the sun had set and under a full moon? If you answered, “yes” to both these questions, there’s a very good chance that you were bitten by a werewolf. You now have less than a month before the full moon returns and with it your first transformation into a savage, bloodthirsty beast.
Survival is an option, but first, know this:
* Werewolves are real.
* The majority of lycanthropes who do not have access to this book die during or shortly after their first transformations, generally due to heart failure, gunshot wounds, exposure, drowning or suicide.
* Hollywood horror movies are NOT to be used as guides to living as a werewolf. Their goal is not to educate, but to entertain. As a result, they are largely ignorant of the realities of the condition.
* Ignorance creates monsters; lycanthropy does not.
* You are not a monster.
The Werewolf's Guide to Life cuts through the fiction and guides you through your first transformation and beyond, offering indispensable advice on how to tell if you’re really a werewolf, post-attack etiquette, breaking the news to your spouse, avoiding government abduction, and how to not just survive, but thrive. You cannot afford to not read this book. Your very life depends on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay... Keep Away From Those Who Are Too Intense. I love werewolves, and all there is to learn about them. So naturally when I saw this novel, I was interested in reading it. I was hoping for it to be on the 'serious' side, as if werewolves were real and what not, but I found it in the Humor section, so I adjusted my views on it. There was really no humor to it. About the only thing I laughed at was the section that helps you 'break the ice' with your loved ones about your situation. One line being, "I have good news and bad news. The good news is I'm not a vampire." It made an attempt at being 'serious', but due to the style of writing and illustrations, I couldn't take it as such. That having been said, if you do know someone with an intense (over the top, almost mental issue or even just too young for common sense) belief that they are real, want to become one and/or think they already are one, you really should NOT get them this novel. It tells the reader to cut themselves as a way to see if they are a werewolf, and also to not seek hospital help if you incure dizziness or other seizure-like symptoms. There is also references to S&M (it is actually mentioned in the novel and recommended to visit shops for ideas to 'muzzle' yourself). There is a chapter on sex, but there are no hardcore werewolf sex scenes, so no worries there for kids. Other than the above, the rest of it is tame, and pretty repetative. This novel only really got three stars because it was a smooth read, and because my liking for werewolves can overcome a lot of the cheese I felt was put into it.
