Publisher's Summary

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.

A totally new look at the werewolf.

This book totally rises above the hollywood werewolf portrayal. Werewolves are not evil killers, but human beings who have a complicated condition to deal with. This is a well-researched, logical, humorous look at the werewolf living and working in today's world. If you are a werewolf, this book will empower you. If you are not, you will learn to empathize with werewolves as never before. This is a must-have for any werewolf fan. Robertson dean does an absolutely awesome job with the narrative too.

If you like werewolves and you have some sense of humor you will like this audiobook. It respects the myth (unlike they have done with vampires so many times...) and gives you a new and modern perspective of what a werewolf should do in these days. I really enjoyed it and it will be one of the audiobooks that i will listen more than one time.

The only useful self-help book I have ever seen

Since a werewolf doesn't have a master with a rolled up newspaper to swat it on the nose, the werewolf must train itself....
All in all, a very useful book. I can't off-hand think of anything they missed. The book takes itself very seriously and is delivered in a deadpan voice.
There is not much excitement in the book. Still, the chapters about fur chasers and covert government experiments might give me nightmares one of these nights. It might take me a while to forget about eating skunks too.

I strongly recommend passing on the book to anybody you suspect of having been bitten by a werewolf. It is a must have for a fledgling werewolf hunter or a deluded fur chaser.

A must have for any lycanthrope!

Whilst the Zombie Guide by Max Brooks is still the pinnacle of the "how to survive your supernatural situation", A Manual For The Newly Bitten is not a bad attempt. I'd have preferred a more detailed reading, but what is here is still very good, very thought provoking and surprisingly fresh in some places. I really hope they bring out a similar title for the newly turned vampires out there!
