I'm knocking off a star for the slightly amateurish layout and design. It's not just that the book looks like it's been self-published and printed "on demand" -- well it does to me -- the issues I have surround the overlaying of text on images (thus making the text harder to read), in fact the approach taken to layout generally is far too busy, and unclean with little or no whitespace, which makes for a less comfortable read than it could be. I don't mean to be unkind, but let's just say that the end result would have been very different had it gone through a more conventional publishing house.
Caveats aside, I happily recommend this title if you have an interest in the less well known aspects of cats, their peculiarities, history, treatment in lore, etc. I doubt you can find a more interesting Fortean treatise on cats so packed cover to cover with feline goodness.
Dr Shuker's book will appeal to all who love cats from housewives to those who study cats as there is plenty to absorb amongst it's pages.
This book is basically all about cats. It features interesting info on all sorts of cats, including various known cats both domestic and wild, to possible undiscovered species of cats. It also features such things as mythology, folklore and literature relating to cats, evidence of telepathy in cats, a mysterious "demon cat", and more.
One of the things that makes Shuker's books such interesting reads is that he often discusses subjects that are not very well known, and this book is certainly no different. I learned some things I had previously been unaware of, including of some cat cryptids I'd not before heard of such as Africa's nunda, and of some intergeneric cat hybrids like the pumapard I'd previously not even considered could be produced.
The book contains numerous colour photographs and drawings, which provides some great insight into the wonderful world of cats.
Whether you are a cryptozoology enthusiast, or just a more general zoology enthusiast, or if you just happen to quite like cats, then this book could be of great interest to you.
