Publisher's Summary

Watch your back! How to spot and identify demons and other subversive spirits...and what to do next.
Demons, fairies, and fallen angels are everywhere. They lurk at crossroads, crouch behind doors, hide in trees, slip into beds, wait in caves, hover at weddings and childbirths, disguise themselves as friends, relatives - even disguise themselves as you. They are powerful; they are protean; they are enchanting. And, to the uninformed, they are often invisible. This guide - the first of its kind - reveals the remarkable permutations of the demon and fairy species worldwide.
Packed with lore about each demon, detailing its origins, the culture surrounding it, and its reputed antics and exploits, A Field Guide to Demons, Fairies, Fallen Angels, and Other Subversive Spirits is a fascinating exploration of global mythologies. Perfect for the armchair traveler and the intrepid, seasoned demon-spotter alike, this complete guide to subversive spirits offers a behind-the-scenes look at the devilish mishaps, impish irritations, and demonic devastations that punctuate our lives.

World travelers planning trips to the Tommyknocker-inhabited mines of North America or to the domain of the Mbulu, who guards the rivers of South America, might consider first listening to Carol and Dinah Mack's Field Guide to Demons, Vampires, Fallen Angels, and Other Subversive Spirits. Or better yet, they might take in this audio bestiary from the relative safety of their own home, where narrator Reay Kaplan adopts an engaging, teacherly tone to catalogue an entire world of enchanted spirits. Experienced demonologists may find the Mack's guide rudimentary, but casual investigators of the supernatural will learn much in this thoroughgoing primer. Arranged geographically by habitat - ocean, desert, forest - the Macks' audiobook is a kind of supernatural and folkloric Who's Who.

Things that go bump in the night.

A strangely interesting book, I'm unsure whether I think it's fluffy clouds or solid fact ( purely my thinking), which I will read again. Did I like the book, yes I think I did. Would I recommend it, yes it is worth giving it a try.

Book interesting.But narrator ruined it for me

I should have listened to the audio sample first. i just assumed for the very expensive price that you will listen to a professional and not someone that sounds like they are high on Valium. Narrator needs a lot more coaching. I really struggled to listen to her monotonous voice and totally ruined it for me. For the price I would expect to listen to a professional as even she sounded bored with herself. I really wasted my money here. I think I should read the book instead of listening , because I can hardly remember a thing she said. The book is more like a dictionary than a story. Really interesting though..just can't get over the bad narration.
